    Nice list, didn't know there where so many. I'm using start8 and love it because it looks identical (when using a custom VS) and works just like the one in windows 7. Also has a decent amount of options and so far I didn't encounter any bugs.

    If anyone is interested the VS is Nite Smooth by =neiio on deviantART

    It's a false-positive, but you shouldn't be letting us know, you should be contacting the developer and letting him know!
