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."

Thanks for that link. I love reading OSNews, but I got sad when a site that is all about Operating Systems focusses purely on a button and that "it looks near-identical to blablabla" instead of digging into what the OS is actually about.

I don't know why Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 weren't more synchronised in their development. I am sure they will get synchronised and that we will eventually have 1 development target and 1 appstore, but just like you I don't think 8.1 will bring that already.

Let's hope for articles with more meat and less whining in the future
