Microsoft said to block ability to boot straight to desktop in Windows 8 [zdnet.com]
If you were one of those business users counting on being able to circumvent the new tiled Windows 8 start menu, you may be disappointed.
The final release-to-manufacturing (RTM) builds of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 have been leaking to the Web for last few days. Those with access to the final builds are discovering the final tweaks Microsoft made to the product since the last public test build, Windows 8 Release Preview, was delivered.
One of those tweaks is the decision to block users from setting up their Windows 8 machines to boot straight to the Desktop, circumventing the tiled Start screen, formerly known as the Metro screen.
