    RetroUI: What do you think?


    This Win8 "changer" doesn't seem to have received the attention that some others have received: RetroUI. It looks pretty decent to me. Has anyone tried it? What do you think? I am not planning to use it; just asking to provide info for others. I need to use Win8 to get the gist of it having done nothing that couldn't be done with reasonable ease without using 3rd party software.

    i reinstalled to check it again , i use it to open a store app ,when i closed the app it closed to the win8 start screen with my toolbar showing and i and i had to then click on the retro ui icon on the task bar to get back to my desktop ,no advantage there,as all i had to do before the install was mouse over the top left corner and click on the desktop icon .
    i guess im not the right to critique it as i don't dislike the new win8 start , going to uninstall it again
