Starting in Windows 95 and continuing through Windows XP, the "Start" button
was a rectangular button on the far left of the taskbar labeled "Start". In
Windows Vista, this button has been replaced with a circular icon featuring
the Windows logo. It is still the Start button, but, since it no longer
contains the word "Start" and is circular instead of rectangular, it is
often referred to as the start "Orb".
