Windows 8.1 Update Tries To Win Back Desktop Diehards

Honestly, I don't think anything Microsoft does at this point will make Windows 8 haters happy but it is still nice to see the company implementing changes based on customer feedback.

A word of warning: If you’re a Metro hater, this update will do almost nothing to make you feel all warm and fuzzy. The Windows 7-style Start menu is not coming back. This update sticks with the fundamental design principles of the Windows 8 interface, and nothing in it comes close to restoring the Windows 7 desktop interface. It is still the Windows 8.x interface, evolved, with that evolution clearly driven by powerful negative feedback.
