    that was just some people wishfully hoping it would look that way
    They were on the Microsoft for Work twitter feed -

    That is not Win9.

    That is what is expected to be in the next Win8.1 Update.
    I have not found anything yet that says that is a concept picture, but it was part of the Build Week Day 1 Key Note
    Time line 2:10:10

    However, in another thread I was told someone had stated that was a concept, not official.
    Hopefully that is what we will get, that is what it should be.
    But, we will have to wait and see.

    Interactive Live Tiles, may be a part of the update as well,, or may come in Win9. Who knows?

    Actually, if the option is there, what is wrong with it?
    I actually like that Start Menu, I would surely use the Start button more often.

    What is the aversion to Tiles and Live Tiles, they are essentially Gadgets.
    Everyone was googoo for gadgets not too long ago.
    Everyone has Gadgets on their phones, (yes, I mean Apps, which many are just gadgets)

    seriously, it makes no sense.
