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."

Hmm, it wouldn't let me vote you up.

I thought they might have finally given users the option to disable the annoying (IMHO) jump between desktop and metro modes. If so, I'd have been ready to buy a windows 8 copy to upgrade a windows machine still running xp. I really don't want to hand them any money as long as they're so adamant about ignoring what customers want.

Damn it MS, just give users back the choice already.
