    If you want to cut to the chase and get one that's almost indistinguishable from the Windows 7 start menu, I'd suggest splurging on Start8 for 5 bucks. You can download it as a trial for free. I confess I did not try the multitude of other choices before settling on Start8, but I've been very happy with it.

    Brink: thanks for the edit. I wasn't aware of the tutorial.
