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.

it's not clear from the screenshots but it looks like the dock is not on top of other windows, so if you want to access it you have to show the desktop first, kinda pointless imho if it's not something that you can access fast enough since that's the main problem with using metro instead of the the windows 7 start menu for launching programs or search for files
