Snippet: No Compromises ☇

Shared on April 16, 2013

Tom Warren for The Verge:

Microsoft is planning to change the way its Start Screen operates with the release of Windows 8.1. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans have revealed to The Verge that the company is currently testing builds of Windows 8.1, known as codename Windows Blue, that include an option to boot directly to the traditional desktop. We’re told that the option is disabled by default, allowing users to simply turn on the functionality should they want to avoid the “Metro” Start Screen at initial boot or login.
