This might be the Windows 8 you’ve been waiting for
Microsoft recently released a video describing their plans to update Windows 8.1, and it looks like it’s finally listening to consumers. After throwing users in the deep end with Windows 8 and expecting them to swim, MS is bringing back a functional Start menu and taskbar. It will also allow users to boot to the desktop as a default option.
All of these are welcome additions for traditional PC users, who still dominate the market. It’s unsure as to when all of these features will be introduced from Microsoft, but hopefully it will be soon. Third party apps have filled in for user demand, and it seems like Microsoft will finally back up the clock a bit to accommodate for this demand.
