Windows Blue Boots To Desktop and Brings Back Start Button?

Various reports surface that Microsoft will allow Windows 8 users to boot directly into the desktop with the next Windows 8 update dubbed Windows Blue.

Microsoft has especially raised some stink with cooperate customers with not including an option in Windows 8 to directly boot into the desktop. The new Metro UI is only fully useful for touch enabled Windows 8 computers. Companies also do not like to have their employees adopt completely new UI. Microsoft is likely fixing this issue in Windows 8.1 aka Windows Blue.

ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley reports that her source can confirm that Windows Blue will likely boot directly into the desktop if that is what a user wants. Windows Blue is also possibly bringing back the "Start Button."

Windows Blue is supposed to be released in August.
