+ - Windows 8 Removes Start Button-> 1

Submitted by Overly Critical Guy
Overly Critical Guy (663429) writes "15 years after its introduction, Microsoft is removing the Start button in Windows 8. By hovering the cursor over the lower-left corner of the taskbar, a clickable thumbnail appears to access the Metro interface. On touch devices, the interface element can be accessed with a swipe gesture. The Start button was the central theme of the famous Windows 95 commercial featuring "Start Me Up" by the Rolling Stones."

  • Seriously, what is the point of all this UI-phobia lately? First removing the start menu, now removing the button?

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.

Working...
