Goodbye Start Menu?
According to various blogs, the latest build of the Microsoft 8 beta has revealed that Microsoft is planning to do away with the Start Menu. As you probably know by now, the next version of their OS, Windows 8, will introduce the new “Metro UI”. The lower left corner where the Start Menu normally is positioned will now be a “hot spot” or “hot corner” that can be used to toggle between the Metro UI and the traditional Windows Desktop UI. It will be interesting to see what the team at Microsoft implements in the final release of Windows 8. Jump over to the official Building Windows 8 Blog to read a post from last October about evolving the Start menu.
