It seems Microsoft have listened to customer feedback and are set to bring back the start button in Windows 8.1, the first update to Windows 8.
We’ve talked about this before and it’s good that they’ve listened to users and experts – not that everyone hates the new Windows 8 interface.
However, without a built in way for users to easily switch back to the traditional start menu, it does seem to impose change where it’s not wanted.
We can’t help thinking that the root of this problem is Microsoft’s attempt to make one operating system for all devices regardless of size and interface. What’s wrong with horses for courses?
