You have to love Stardock Software

I am tickled pink by this company.

This is the perfect example of capitalism at it’s finest. They saw a need in the market and man did they ever fill it!

Stardock have released a near-final build of Start8, the utility that adds the Start button back to the Windows 8 desktop.

In addition, Start8 also provides a fully functional post-Windows 7 style Start menu!

Some of the new features:

  • Adds a classic style “Start” menu to the Windows 8 taskbar.
  • Includes support for:
    • View and launch installed applications (including Metro/Modern)
    • All Programs menu, quick links to commonly accessed folders (Documents, Music, Photos, Computer, and more).
  • Adds searchable Start menu options for Windows desktop applications, Metro/Modern applications, and documents.
  • Adds a “Start” button to the Windows 8 taskbar.
  • Automatically load directly to your Windows desktop on login (vs the start screen).
  • Pin favorite shortcuts directly to the start menu for easy access.
  • Includes support for “jump lists”/recent documents for recently accessed programs.

and more…
