Windows "Windows 8 changes a lot of things about how the operating system works, but one of the features Windows traditionalists will find jarring is the lack of a Start button. Although the button's functions are still present in various places, users may miss its easy click-and-start-typing familiarity. Well, Samsung's bringing it back. The all-in-one PCs Samsung unveiled this morning are the first Windows machines to sport the S Launcher, a simple widget that acts just like the old start button." This is not from The Onion. I repeat, this is not from The Onion.

Are you and Nelson going to hang around Best Buy to help people navigate the invisible buttons?

I can see it now:
NO WAIT DONT LEAVE, WINDOWS 8 IS NOT A POS LIKE EVERYONE SAYS. JUST GIMME ANOTHER 10 MINUTES.

Good software doesn't need forum defenders. When Firefox 1.0 came out I didn't see continual explanations of why it doesn't actually suck. It took off with a wide variety of users because it was a clear improvement over IE6. I had non-technical people asking me if I had used it. My annoying clueless neighbor even came over to tell me about how great it was.

Wake the f*** up already. Windows 8 is shitty software. The fact that Samsung is doing this speaks volumes.
