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."

One of my favorite lines: It's easy when you know how.

Windows 8 isn't difficult, but going from Windows 95 all the way to Windows 7 is almost zero learning curve. If you're a Windows 95 guru, frozen in time and revived many years later and shown Windows 7 you can operate it.

With Windows 8 there is more to figure out, mainly due to the Metro screen, which may probably prove very difficult for the less talented among us.

When I asked a co-worker what version of Windows she had at home she replied it was all strange so I knew it was Windows 8.
