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 fact that it requires a video, in the XXI century after a couple decades of graphical desktops, to grasp basic functionality points towards windows 8 having some serious usability problems...

I can understand Microsoft's approach though trying to unify the desktop and the tablet/phone spaces. From a development/cost perspective.
