There has been a lot of controversy on the removal of the iconic Start Menu as part of Windows 8. I don’t care for the change, either. Yes, a Start button on a touchscreen isn’t very intuitive, and that was my major gripe on Windows Mobile (a desktop OS on a mobile device?!).
Stardock has announced a new program called Start8, which brings back a Start menu to Windows 8. I sure called that one. I had said that a third party, either Stardock or someone else, will create a new application to bring it back. And I knew it would be Stardock, as this is their specialty! Should be released later this week!
