I think he means the "show the desktop" in the quicklaunch.
I found this on http://www.worldstart.com/tips/tips.php/1562:
Go to Start/Run and type in "notepad" (without the quotes) then type in these lines:
Next, save the file with the name "Show Desktop.scf" in the folder
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\ Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ Quick Launch
Your actual user account name goes where it says "username".
The Show Desktop icon should reappear next to your Start button and you can close out Notepad.
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"
"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
