    So...... The "Start Menu" will be a "Feature" for Windows 9.

    "Microsoft's original plan was to make this update a much bigger and more important release."

    All these amazing things, makes we wonder if all of this work being done is being done by a few Chinese students working for $1.20/hr. Its just such terrific stuff wait for a menu lel.

    Meh, I don't really care about bringing the start menu back. I'm still ok with the current start screen and I don't understand the level of hate people have for it. I understand how it might not suit someone's preferences (if I were an active Windows user I wouldn't prefer it) but it doesn't deserve hate.

    I have seen metro like 3 times since my w8.1 goes directly to desktop with classical start menu.
    I can complain about dozens of other things like numlock being off at login screen which one has to get working via registry.
    Or that annoying/creepy: "We are setting things up for you."

    "...There are rumors Microsoft is planning to offer Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 users some kind of deal — possibly even a free upgrade to Windows 9 — in order to get them to move to the latest Windows version once it's out next year."

    Here is hoping these rumors come to fruition. Free; not likely. Another offer of $40 to upgrade would be cool.

    I've just got MSDN Update 3 for VS 2013, but there's no sign of Update 2 for Windows 8.1, and I got Update 1 before public availability.

    Dunno why people are so bothered about what is arriving in update X

    The OS you like, be it XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, they all still work

    You don't like a certain OS, or a certain update, don't use it, simplez

    Quit whinging

    I´m sorry what the heck means "putting all the wood behind the [Windows 9] arrow"? It sounds like something one would say before sex.

    They are putting all their eggs in one basket. Looks like they are going all in...with Windows 9.

    I haven't had the issue with numlock on either of my 8.1 machines. It has worked correctly since day 1.
