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.

Don't worry. If you tried to use the mouse to shut down the windows 8 developer preview, you will find that almost equally stupid. ;)

Fortunately, Alt-F4 works. But then again, it does in previous windows versions as well.
