Microsoft also showed a demo earlier this year, mixing Live Tiles, Modern apps and legacy apps.
Account options are pinned to the top, while shutdown/restart have their own button. The Start Menu itself has two sections, one for legacy apps and then a second section on the right for modern apps with Live Tiles. It will work in general like the Windows 7 start menu, allowing for pinned apps, favorites, recently used and a full list of your installed apps.
Tablet users can continue to use their regular Start Screen, but keyboard/mouse users can choose to default right to the desktop.
