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.

I said that many people were reminded of KDE 4. And it is easy to find such posts via Google e.g.

I did not come across posts claiming similarity to Dashboard or Konfabulator at the time (but then again, I didn't look very hard).

So it explains very well where the GP got "this stuff".
