Windows 8: One screen, no Start button, says Ballmer

Windows 8: One screen, no Start button, says Ballmer
One of the biggest changes with Windows 8 is the disappearance of the familiar start button at the lower left corner of the screen. There will be a new screen filled with a colorful array of tiles, each leading to a different application, task or collection of files.

After his keynote in New York on Thursday, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was asked by The Associated Press whether there was any chance of bringing it back.

His reply "You've got a whole screen as a start button." It's a reference to the screen of tiles.

During the presentation, a Microsoft executive had noted that the start button was something people had to get used to when it was first introduced, suggesting that people will get used to the tile format, too.
