Despite being found guilty of copying the iPhone and iPad, Samsung continues to copy Apple's design.

Gizmodo points to their new S-Launcher that will be included with all their Windows 8 machines.

The S Launcher is a clone of Microsoft's windows 7 start menu, and the only purpose it serves is to allow windows 7-like start menu functionality on windows 8 devices (where the start menu has been removed in favor of the much disliked "dont-call-it-metro" start screen). here is a better shot of the s launcher at work: http://www.engadget.com/2012/08/28/samsungs-s-launcher-start-menu-windows-8/ as far as the dock aspect and transparency, companies have been aping that from apple for years coughHPcough so I dont know where you have all been
