So I step away from this blog for 10 seconds and Microsoft go bonkers on me with yet another possible Windows 8 update.
Bloggers are starting to talk about a new wave of updates that might form the nucleus of what we will call Windows 8.2. Right now though, the nickname being used for these updates is “Threshold”.
There are a couple of new rumors that hit the interwebs today and might be fun.
Metro apps coming to the desktop.
It seems like Microsoft may be bringing the apps in the modern UI into the traditional desktop. Not quite sure exactly what that would look like but it’s an interesting concept if you ask me.
Start Menu returning
This might be the biggest Mea Culpa plea in history if true. Paul Thurrott is reporting that Microsoft might actually be bringing back the Start Menu. They brought back the Start Button already in Windows 8.1 but it’s pretty clear that it was a bullshit half measure. This would be things coming full circle if true.
We’ll keep track of all the new Threshold/Windows 8.2 developments so stay tuned.
What do you think of these potential new changes?
