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.

I (IMHO) just don't think it's wise if you want to make the world know you are not a copycat to introduce yet another piece of 'evidence' proving the opposite.

Most people don't know about other docks, glassy projects or what they used on Star Trek in the 60's, but they will recognize the OS X dock.

Personally I don't mind Samsung doing this and I don't claim Apple "invented" the dock.
