Interesting news from Paul Thurrott.
It seems that the Start Button will be back in Windows 8.1 and it will look a whole lot like the button Start8 use in their widget.
From his blog:
And here’s a new detail that was hinted at in Mary Jo’s post: When you hover over Start button, the button changes color, with a black background and the accent color used on the flag logo. Yes, it looks exactly like the Start Charm, with similar animations.
And when you activate the Switcher app switching utility, the Start button will appear at the bottom as the Start tip does today, and has Start text in the box, as it does now.
It will be interesting to see a picture with the button actually clicked on to see it in action.
Windows 8.1 is coming soon.
