Windows Raymond Chen's The Old New Thing - one of the best Windows blogs on the web - has a very interesting item up about a certain bit of behaviour in Windows 95 I was unaware of. Basically, there's a neat little trick where you can close and move the Start button. It wasn't a feature, but a bug.

haha! This was my favorite prank as a stupid teenager. While the salesperson was busy buttering up their customer, I would sneak over to each computer on display and close the start menu. I loved watching the salesperson fumble from PC to PC, turning red from embarrassment, as they experienced "technical difficulties." For some reason, it never dawned on them to reboot the PC---maybe since the start menu was the main pathway to the shutdown function. =)~
