    Or, of course, you could just go w/out it, in any version.

    Cheers,

    StartMenu 8 has some bugs, as most Beta software does, but it's a useable product.

    I must admit, I don't really need it, can run 8 RP as is, except for security. Ran 8 CP w/o any of these things, had to wing it a couple of days, then there were keyboard shortcuts posted, this helped a lot.

    Just today, & it's still going on until 3AM, Giveaway of the Day is giving away Start Menu X Pro, which normally costs $19.95, & is by far a more refined offering (they have a Free version too). But again, I don't need this stuff.

    I'm basically doing this to participate in the project & hopefully improve it, just as I do other Beta apps, mainly security. If it weren't for Beta testers, we wouldn't be enjoying many of the apps that we have today. Same with health care, clinical trials are the route to the modern medical options that we have today. Many patients died for this cause.

    Someone has to step forward & participate in these things, just as with Windows 7 (a success before it was even released), & now Windows 8 RP. I believe it's going to be a success also, though not as fast as 7 was. 7 was a big hit in large part due to no real new alternative for 8 years (XP was released in 2001 & Vista never was a hit).

    There is a market for StartMenu 8, obviously for those who wants the Windows 7 look & feel on a Windows 8 computer. Time will tell whether or not the project successful or not.

    Mainly by those willing to participate in new technologies, no matter the cause, we now have access to many things that we didn't just a few years ago.

    Food for thought.

    As with any new app, this is to be expected. Remember, this is a BETA app, not a stable release. The more bugs reported to IObit, the better. And the longer you stick with it, as with any unfinished beta app, the better it works. Real world testers are required to make new apps/OS's available for all. Windows 8 is still in beta & is no exception to the rule.

    Actually, on a fresh install of 8 RP, just got finished a few minutes ago, some apps wouldn't open from StartMenu 8. For me, it's no big deal, I go to the tiles to open whatever doesn't on this app.

    But I feel that it's important to report it.

    What kind of bugs are you experiencing w/the app, peterr89?

    Cat,

    Can you, please, better explain, for me, of what dual-boot issue you speak. As, I think you know I have dual-booted XP/Vista, Vista/& and 7/8; plus, there was a time that I triple-booted, for a while although, I forget which 3 OSs it was.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Peter,

    Not sure how much of a revelation that is... would be precisely why we beta test OSs. But, it would be cool if you would state to what beta you refer & state what the specific or particular bugs are. Also, kind of wonder what your point is besides commenting on the expected, ie that a beta may have bugs.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    I've dual, tri & quad booted OS's a few times. Are you speaking of another issue in another thread, perhaps the "Attitude" one? If so, it's best to discuss it there.

    I don't want to turn this thread about another app into mine.
