Lately I've taken to a little gag on the web.

I've joined a couple Windows forums. After registering I make a post to the effect of "help, I don't have a start button!". Then you just sit back and watch the tech support roll in. I almost always let them off after a while with a "oh, I figured out why I don't have a start button. I don't use Windows".

It's hilarious every time. Some of those guys get REALLY angry!
