Samsung brings back the Start Menu in Windows 8 with S-Launcher

Sick and tired of not having the Start Menu in Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 operating system? Well now you can relax (somewhat) because Samsung is creating a desktop widget that acts like the old start button and its called “S-Launcher.”

Samsung revealed some new All-in-One PCs today and also the new S-Launcher desktop widget that acts just like the old start button.
