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.

And here I thought the OS X Dock was inspired by (and in early versions, even had legacy code from) the NeXTSTEP Dock as it existed in the late 80s through the mid-late 90s.

But hey, don't let facts get in the way right?
