Rumor: Windows Blue to Reinstate Start Menu, Boot to Desktop


Well, that wasn’t so hard now was it? After a tepid response by consumers for their latest operating system, rumors are flying around that Microsoft is finally considering a scale back of the Metro UI. In this case, giving consumers a choice.

While Windows 8 allows you to switch to the desktop, actually booting to it usually required a third-party application. As for the Start button, there is ongoing discussion that emphasizes the button itself, not the actual menu.

We’ll just have to see in June.
