Windows For all intents and purposes, this is only a minor change, and were this any other operating system or graphical environment, it would never warrant an entire news item. However, we're talking Windows, the most popular desktop operating system of all time, here. After 17 years of trusty service, Microsoft has removed the Start button from the taskbar in the upcoming Consumer Preview release of Windows 8.

Well, it is broke. (At least for me.) The WIMP model sucks, and I'm glad that everyone is trying to fix it. I don't like all the new innovations that are being tried, but I think we're finally on the path to better user interfaces.
