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.

Lol...while true, I'll argue that the Gnome 3, Unity, and KDE 4 didn't entirely remove the start button. They altered its usage. Personally I really like Gnome 3 and if I miss the traditional menu style I use the Mint Shell Extensions of put a traditional menu on-top of Gnome 3.
