The update will be previewed in June and it looks like it will include the venerable start menu. It’s odd listening to the complaints over Win8. Sure it was disconcerting when I first installed it but I thought it was an “adventure” like in the old days when trying something new. Guess people these days want instant gratification and don’t have the patience to play with the OS and figure things out.
Metro is fine once you figure it out. The problem was the lack of touch screen monitors to really make use of it. That will change in time.
Many of the improvements listed in the article really mean nothing for me the corporate user as they are more for the home/mobile user.
What will be interesting is to hear the comments of the Win 8 users after we upgrade.
