It's all a matter of searching for them, there are probably more out there being developed as we speak.

Has anyone tried any of the suggestions in the latest edition of the mag?

I'd like to get a Start Menu app installed on Windows 8 (once I get it installed) but want to know what the "best" one is to use. I'm not that big into fancy, just as long as it looks similar to that in Windows 7 or Windows XP/Vista, and functions pretty much the same way. That's really the only major thing holding me back on using Win8 as a primary OS. I need my start menu...

Do these programs just replace the start screen of Win8 with the start menu from previous Windows or do they change the desktop also?
