    Once people get start button in Windows 8, how they turn back to Metro UI? Is there any solution about that?

    No problem, if you has use mouse, move closer to left down and Metro will popup and you may back to Metro. I work to improve for touch so in few weeks it will work even more better. So when win 8 will be released you get the best solution for it.

    1. Start 8 buggy and I can't even run it on virtual pc
    2. Start 8 Provide the same functionality as Windows 8 9in other word has no sence)
    3. Start Menu 7 is much powerful and useful. You should try - startmenu7.com

    Tried both start8 and ur said start menu 7..

    i will stick to start8 b'coz start menu 7 disappointed me at following stages:

    1. Big setup file
    2. Overflow of taskbar icons and start button.. see attachment

    1. Yes! Since you get not only button but Start Menu with 32 bit and 64 bit files in one setup.
    2. Just restart windows.

    I do not miss the Start Button at all. I have been using Win 8 CP since it was first released and do not miss it. Before that I used Win 7 Ultimate exclusively. There are plenty of ways to customize the Taskbar to do everything I want to do without a Start Button or Menu. I spend 99 % of my time on the Desktop. I do not need any special apps to replace the Start Menu. Thanks but no thanks.

    All 1 may find nice is having Shut Down & Restart buttons handy although, Alt+F4 gives Sleep, as well.

    A start button, in the Windows Orb sense is not necessary.. there is Start in the bottom-left OR Win key plus its Rt Clk menu.

    You know, whilst some ppl are on about loss of start menu... just, having Desktop Toolbar on the Taskbar can be an appealing 'must have' Actually makes some good stuff, very handy, no matter what
