Windows RT Update 3 released with Start Menu in tow

If you're still rocking a Windows RT device, it looks like you can start pulling down the long-promised Update 3. It's not a major update by any means, but it does bring a new start menu along for the ride.

The start menu isn't a full Windows 10 replica, but it's good to see its arrival nonetheless. You can see shots of it in action below, provided by Twitter user @teroalhonen:

Windows RT Start Menu

As previously noted by Microsoft, Windows RT users won't be able to take advantage of Universal Windows 10 apps with this update, so keep that in mind. Also, it's likely that this will be the last update for Windows RT, which never really got off the ground due to its inability to run x86 programs.

So if you're still clinging to a Surface RT, Surface 2, or any other ARM-based Windows RT device, you should be able to start pulling Update 3 down via Windows Update.
