Windows 8.2 / 9 will welcome back the Start Menu

Fans of the original Windows interface got some great news on Microsoft’s annual BUILD developers conference where it was annoucned that the company would be putting back the highly demanded Start menu back into action. This is primarily beneficial for those who are still running the desktop versions of the OS. It was clearly stated that it is there to bring a sense of familiarity to the traditional Windows users. Though we were pretty much clear that the Start Menu would not be making a come back with the Windows 8.1 Update 1 but deep inside we were sure that it would follow soon in the upcoming updates and here it is.

Windows 8.2 / 9, or rather ‘Windows 8.1 Update 2′ will bring back the Start Menu which is highly being missed. Before the BUILD, all of us had been looking forward to an update called Windows 8.1 Update 1 but Microsoft decided to remove the last digit at the very last minute and because of the update being names as the Windows 8.1 Update alone, many of us speculated that there would be no more updates coming to this stream.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
