Windows 8 May not Have the Start Button

Start button has been with the Windows operating system ever since Windows 95, but it looks like that Windows 7 might be the last place you can see it. According to some new reports about Windows 8 that surfaced last week, the iconic Start button is now gone. Instead, it’s been replaced by a hot spot on the bottom left corner of the screen that you need to hover over to bring up, though you can also press the Windows button on your keyboard or hit CTRL + Esc. In previous test builds Microsoft had flattened the button to match its Metro style interface, and the latest builds go one step further by fully removing the Start button orb. Windows 8 will continue to have the Super Bar which users will use for pinning desktop applications.
