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.

Anyone can use it as far as I am concerned. It may not be very original, but people are used to it.

But if you are called Samsung it may be wiser to be a little more creative or base the look on another dock/launcher and not the OS X one.

People with half a brain cell will start making links with Apple product even when there are no (intentional) ones and Samsung's brand name will start to feel like a cheap Asian copy of premium western products.
