    I'm not sure where the direct download link will be yet, but I'm sure one of you out there will have it

    That's what I was lead to believe too. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Roll on the disappointment as the end users realise that have the Start button back doesn't mean that the old Start menu will appear!

    I feel for any schools that have already rolled out W8, your help desks are about to get flooded with "my start menu is broken!"

    Not sure how accurate this is, but according to PC Pro, it will be available via the Microsoft Store as a free download that will install over the op of the existing Windows install.

    Yeah its kinda like a service pack - but not a service pack

    Question is - can it be blocked and deployed via SCCM 2012?
