Surface, Surface 2 to get Start tweak next month

Gregg Keizer | Aug. 11, 2015
Microsoft today revealed small tidbits about what next month's update to the defunct Windows RT tablet operating system will include, saying that an enhanced Start menu will be part of the deal.

The confirmation was entirely expected, as Microsoft never said Windows RT would be able to run Windows 10's universal apps, and more importantly, dumped the former OS for its latest low-end tablet, the 2015 Surface 3, which runs Windows 8.1.

But those who did commit to Windows RT, which Microsoft aggressively promoted three years ago, have to be unhappy: If they want on the Windows 10 train, they will have to ditch their devices and buy anew.
