The (possible) return of the full Start Menu in Windows 8

According to some reports, the Threshold update for Windows 8.x platform [I mentioned this here], which is scheduled to be released sometime next year, may please many current Windows XP/Vista/7 owners:

The full Start Menu may be back.

Terry Myerson, who’s running the Windows platform at Microsoft, is planning to unify Windows Phone and Windows RT into a single platform. He’s planning a follow-up to Windows 8.1, that will ship sometime next year [I’m guessing in October] and make the Windows, Windows Phone, and Xbox One user experiences more similar.

Microsoft will be making it possible to run Modern mobile apps—which are typically run full-screen like other mobile apps—in floating windows on the desktop, allowing them to work more seamlessly with desktop applications.
