Windows Now that Windows 8 has gone gold, Microsoft can move on to other things. With Windows 8, the most important of these is probably to make sure people know how to actually use it. Metro is filled to the brim with hard-to-discover features, but Microsoft has a plan. Will it be enough?

Mind blow time: the System Tray is not called the system tray, and never has been by Microsoft. It’s called the Notification Area and has been since Windows 95.

Well they shouldn't have released such a buggy OS with a "notification tray" applet called "systray.exe" or whatever it was, that killed two or three icons in that area every time it crashed... and man, did it crash a lot.

Combine a constantly-crashing "systray.exe" with the immediate removal of a couple icons down there and it's not hard to see why most people--myself included--call that little thing down there the system tray.
