Windows 8 Start Menu Alternative From Stardock
I just stumbled upon this http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/
it basically gives you the full start menu back, it looks just like W7 start menu and it makes me very happy because as much as i like the new start screen, most the time on my pc, i dont use it and for $4.99 it's a must buy!
UPDATE: I have been told on Twitter by Tom that this has been out for months! Sorry about old news! I did see a few apps that tried to replicate the old start menu but never saw one that works so well. my bad!
