    Two start buttons...!!
    That's right... one brings you to the classic start menu, for the study hunks... and one brings you to metro... for the frilly panty crowd..(I kid I kid...)

    Best of both worlds... and everyone gets what they want... problem solved..!!

    Dayum I'm smrt....

    Hmmm, maybe a combination of "Classic Shell" type program and adding a second Start button.

    Start Menu - Restore in Windows 8

    and

    "Start" Screen Shortcut - Create in Windows 8

    If you like start8, you should also try Modernmix. I have both....and they're both awesome.

    ModernMix™ - Run Modern (Metro) apps in a window on your desktop with ModernMix™

    I installed Start8 about five minutes after I upgraded to 8. I've recommended it to a bunch of people that got 8 on a new computer but didn't like the interface. They all love it, as do I.

    Stardock has a beta for Start8 that works on Windows 8.1. I haven't tried it yet, but will soon. Currently using Classic Shell on 8.1.
