An official developer preview of Windows 8.1 is expected to be released in June at the BUILD conference, but in the mean time information has been leaking out. Icons for the new ‘Alarms,’ ‘Sound Recorder,’ ‘Calculator,’ and ‘Movie Moments’ have been uncovered by PCPortal.
On the latest episode of Windows Weekly, Mary-Jo Foley has confirmed with her sources that the start button along with “boot to desktop” is indeed baked in to the latest internal build at Microsoft. I think this is a huge step backwards, but that is a discussion for another blog post.
