  Windows 8.1 Start button may not offer actual Start menu
Time: 09:14 EST/14:14 GMT | News Source: CNET | Posted By: Robert Stein

But - and there always seems to be a "but" - the new Start button apparently will not trigger a traditional Start menu but instead simply bounce users back to the Start screen, according to The Verge's sources. If true, that means the button would serve the same role as the Start screen thumbnail that appears when you move your mouse to the lower left "hot" corner. Excuse me? Assuming The Verge's sources are correct, I guess such a Start button would benefit people who don't know they can access the Start screen thumbnail by hovering over the left corner. Otherwise, I don't see the advantage in a Start button that just brings you back to the Start screen.

That would be a very stupid move for Microsoft to make. Like a slap in the face to consumers who were already slapped multiple times by involuntarily losing the Start Button and Start Menu. Bringing the Start Button AND THE START MENU back to Windows 8 is the only thing that is going to save it.

I'm glad the start menu is dead. It has outlived its usefulness, and the start screen is a great improvement. People need to just stop whining and get over it.

The new Start button will just be an IE link to www.microsoftstore.com.
