Early look at Windows 9’s Start menu

It looks like Microsoft really won’t be bringing the Start menu back to Windows 8, and will instead try to win users back with the next version of Windows. One wonders whether Microsoft should just skip every other Windows release, given their track record.

The Verge has leaked screenshots of Windows 9’s Start menu, and it appears to be an amalgamation of features from Windows 8 and Windows 7, with the right half of the menu showing pinned ‘Metro’ style apps.
