    Been very happy with Start8. I purchased 3 copies for my own use (1 copy for my laptop, 1 copy for wife''s laptop, and 1 copy for a new laptop for the kids).

    Note: just keep in mind that there's a limit to how many times you can un-install and re-install start8. It's in the fine print and I think the limit is 10.

    Really? Yow!

    On one machine, or altogether? They probably want to make sure you don't buy it and then install it to 500 machines heh.

    Yep, Start8 is the No.1 choice on all my 8.1 systems.

    The license is good for 1 computer, per the EULA. Hence the reason that I purchased 3 separate copies...I'm using it on 3 different computers. So, $15 invested in total on my part. So, I have 3 total serial #'s.

    It was funny reading the post that was linked above. I build a ton of VM's too, but I guess I don't find things like Start8 absolutely critical to the point where I have to run it on each and every VM. As long as it's on my main laptop/desktop....I'm fine. I can work around a start menu on other testing computers.
