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.

marksporr you make the mistake of suggesting consumers are denied choice. They are not. You make the mistake of assuming Windows isn't popular. It is.

At some point, people should stop making excuses and concede the fact that every OS has it's own list of strengths and weaknesses. None are perfect and none are complete crap. Windows, like it or not, is a good product with millions of satisfied users.

There's no such thing as one-size-fits-all in the OS world. Let's not pretend it does.
