Submission + - Windows 8 Removes Start Button (theverge.com) 1

Overly Critical Guy 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.
