Microsoft’s Windows 8 Blue

Windows 8 blue is the code name for the upcoming milestone build of windows 8, also known as 8.1. Slated to go RTM around August 2013, 8 Blue has the potential to bring back a few familiar items. What exactly? Well the inter-webs have been bustling with rumors of Microsoft bringing back both the start button as well as allowing users to boot right to the desktop rather than the metro style apps. In my eyes this would be great for business users as many of them are going to stick with the tried and true computer at a desk and really have no need for touch screen or the fancy new tile layout.

Personally I do not mind no start menu as I typically pin all of my programs to the task bar and operate from there, but there are quite a few people of whom could easily get confused. I would compare it to having no steering wheel in your next car, and you have to figure out how to drive it.

What do you think?
