You would think Samsung (005930) would have learned a thing or two after its trial with Apple — it would appear not. The South Korean manufacturer on Tuesday revealed that its Windows 8 computers will come preloaded with its S Launcher widget, Mashable reported. The launcher includes the forgotten Windows Start button and also allows users to simply drag and drop program shortcuts to the dock for quick and easy access. There is just one problem, however: it looks exactly like the dock Apple (AAPL) has used in OS X for years. Samsung was recently found guilty of infringing on Apple’s patented designs and technology, and was ordered to pay more than $1 billion in damages.
