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."

Ah, the lock screen. This is the Windows 8 feature that truly defeated my legendary skill of figuring things out without a manual.

It had me staring at the screen for some time wondering why people claimed Windows 8 PCs booted so quick and mine didn't.

I do wonder why some people claim some kind of unlock technique is needed as I just hit a (mouse) button.
