Windows The Verge confirms an earlier story by Mary Jo Foley. "Microsoft is preparing to revive the traditional Start button it killed with Windows 8. Sources familiar with Microsoft's plans have revealed to The Verge that Windows 8.1 will include the return of the Start button. We understand that the button will act as a method to simply access the Start Screen, and will not include the traditional Start Menu. The button is said to look near-identical to the existing Windows flag used in the Charm bar."

The Verge hasn't CONFIRMED anything. The Verge is spreading rumors by siting 'sources familiar with Microsoft's plans', and you are helping facilitate this with your misleading article title.

Hence, the title of this article should read:

RUMOR: Windows 8.1 set to bring back the Start button
