In a Q&A on the Windows Blog Microsoft’s Tami Reller Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Financial Officer answered questions on the update coming for Windows 8 and Windows RT. The Windows Blue update is due later this year and is “an opportunity for us to respond to the customer feedback that we’ve been closely listening to” and the rumours are that it could see the return of the Start button and maybe boot to desktop. They has been a lot of talk about Microsoft needing to return the Windows Start button something I don’t really seen the need for but I suppose it won’t actual do any harm to bring it back. There has also been lots of talk about a Start Menu coming back but I can’t see that happening and to be honest I don’t want to see it having got used to Windows 8.
Also in the Q&A Microsoft reveal that Windows 8 sales have passed the 100 million mark which includes new PCs as well as upgrades and that there are now over 2400 certified Windows 8 and Windows RT devices with more and more touch devices being added all the time.
