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.

"a hot corner has replaced the Start button orb"

So Microsoft is copying Gnome Shell this time.

Using hot corners and mouse hovering/mouseover to activate items is neither new, nor thanks to Gnome.. Sorry to rain on your parade.
