Curved window corners! Exciting.

But what, I wonder, is the rationale for centering the task bar icons, especially the Start button. I can see no logically better-than-before reason for that (particularly the Start button) apart from "shiny, new, different".

This means that the Start button location will change depending on how many icons there are in the task bar. So you will not be able to reliably find it in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. I know that from a remote tech support perspective, this will unnecessarily complicate things. From a usability perspective it will also require a look-and-find-before-clicking process instead of automatically moving to the bottom left hand corner.

Oh well, the need to fiddle with the familiar and successful is unstoppable, it seems.

Let's hope that centred positioning of the Start button is an optional feature, rather than enforced.
