    Microsoft just may have gone too far.

    Am I reading that correctly? They've removed the start button.. as in the single primary point of control for all of windows, and which people have used for over a decade, they removed it?

    wtf

    Mhh...not a very clever choice. At least you can re-activate it again, so it is not totally gone.

    They might realize this mistake and enable it by default. Who knows.

    But this is definitively not a "Microsoft is dead" scenario we are talking about here. Just a very, very strange decision.

    If they fail on the desktop market then they are not on top of the market sales annually.

    They dominate the desktop/laptop market just like Howard dominates the trolling market in this subsection :p

    @ApocalypseXL - Are you trying to misdirect this thread and make it about me or are you going to stay on topic?

    Speaking of off-topic. It's interesting how most posters on DP obviously did not read the article nor watch the video judging by their responses.

    To leave out the Windows Start button

    The windows Start button

    Yes, but now I doubt that you, as OP, even read your own source. If you have read the source (which YOU provided) the connection is clear....

    @GMF - Actually I mis-read your post and thought you said "This IS a Microsoft is dead thread".
