Microsoft heralds the triumphant return of the Start menu

Microsoft Windows 8 Start Menu

The most baffling omission from Windows 8 is undoubtedly the Start menu. Microsoft went all-in with its Metro interface, leaving Start behind, but the company has heard the pleas of developers and users alike, and announced on Wednesday that the Start menu will be returning to Windows 8 in a future update. From the short glimpse we got, it looks like Microsoft will be integrating Live Tiles into the menu as well. There is currently no timetable for the update, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for any news on the matter.
