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.

From my perspective, it very much feels like Win 7 is a bastardized version of KDE 4.

What really happened is KDE took some good ideas from windows 7 and made them better. Plus, its smooth Linux underneath just makes it feel so much better than jerk-tacular windows. Its really frustrating and limiting when I have to muck around windows 7.
