    Good question, though as far as I know it's still called the 'Start' button despite there being no mention of the word on the button itself.

    This article from Microsoft seems to confirm this.

    It is still a start button, although I think it's referred to as an "orb" of sorts.

    It will always be "start". Thank you Windows 95.
