In a recent interview, Microsoft's Windows CFO Tami Reller, was asked about the return of the Start Button in Windows 8.1. Here was her response: What people are asking for when they ask for a Start Button is A FREAKIN START BUTTON! You don't have to focus group it, you don't have to create a panel of experts to figure it out. They just want a Start Button. This is MS's problem, THEY DON'T LISTEN, THEY FILTER. They take what the public says and filter it through the prism of what they want to do anyway. In another place this same person said, Some. Alrighty then. Assuming MS wants Windows 8 to eventually have more than 5% of the market, let's hope MS gets Windows 8.1 right. Based upon these comments I have my doubts. In typical MS they will try and distract us with lots of fancy new features no one asked for while leaving the core problems in place.
