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."

I had to explain to one of the guys in the office how quite a few features in Windows 7 worked, after he got an upgraded machine.

A lot of people didn't like the XP start menu, when it came out.

I still used classic start menu when forced to run windows, in kde i use classic style as well, in awesome wm it is afaik the only option and finally in my main WM (AmiWM) it is a text based menu defined in .amiwmrc. Great stuff and "one click launches" is in my way of computing faster (for me atleast) than two clicks+search as is the prefered "new way" in windows.
I guess the new way can be faster if the menu is an disorganized mess, but i really try to keep my items tidy.
