After so much disappointment from desktop users, the old lovable Start button makes a comeback
It was quite evident that Microsfot would have to make a turn back to that old Start button. With that being the traditional home button, many users were offended when that was taken off and there is a large pool of users on desktop to which Microsoft caters. The announcement made today at the BUILD 2014 was certainly targetted towards those users who are used to having Windows the traditional way. This opportunity was taken up by Microsoft’s Terry Myerson who showcased how exactly the Windows 8.1 will give users the chance to experience the return of the Start button.
There are plenty of screenshots available on the internet which display the comeback of the Start button and most of these photos show how elements from both the Windows 7 and 8 have been combined to bring something to the users which falls between both the operating systems. Though most of the features of the UI have been taken from the older much traditional concepts which takes back the user to the nostalgic 90s, yet there is enough evidence to show the impactful change of the simple Windows to the touch-based future of digital hardware.It is quite surprising that Microsoft has taken the user comments a bit too far; even Facebook continued to evolve after disappointed customers.
