[All My WTF] My Honest Feeling Regarding The Start Button In Windows 8.1 Preview

Do excuse me: this is a bit lengthy. But fortunately, not in words.

So. Microsoft have recently released the new Windows 8.1 Preview which featured many fixes in all sort of area for Windows including the “return” of the Start button. Obviously, I installed it just to see what's up.

Frankly speaking, there is no difference for me whether the button is there or not as I’m already used to Windows 8 interface (using touch-based device helps a lot) but nevertheless, this new Start button in Windows 8.1 somehow left me a bit puzzles.

Because this is not the Start button that we all know from Windows 95 to Windows 7.

That's right. The Start button in Windows 8.1 doesn't function as per the Start button that we all know. Instead, it acts as a switcher between Start screen and desktop mode while the right click menu provides quick access to numerous system options. WTF, right? I do like having that quick access though.

On another hand, I don’t whether if this is a permanent feature or Microsoft has just pulled off a huge trollolo to Windows users. Hence, do note that it is called Preview for a reason, so don’t flip your table just yet.
