    Microsoft Almost Ignores the Windows 8.1 Start Button at..


    Computex

    Microsoft has already confirmed that the Start button will make its comeback in Windows 8.1, but the company doesn’t seem to be too excited about this particular feature. At least, not as much as its users.

    The company revealed more details about the Start button at the Computex 2013, but instead of describing the upcoming option in detail, it actually said only little about it.

    Well if course they aren't going to make a big deal about this. They wanted it gone, but are reinstating it (somewhat) due to customer complaints.

    At least consumers have third party options. And free ones at that.
