    Windows 8 CP Start Menu App

    I'm just installing this now and will give it a test drive. Download (2MB) requires an email address.

    Stardock Corporation - Software - Start8

    Important caveat from the Read-Me file :

    This version of Start8 is only intended for use with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and will stop working on September 1, 2012.

    Its actually quite a nice little app - highly recommended for those of you, like me, that miss the Start Orb. It has a nice selection of alternate Start buttons too.

    - Adds a "Start" menu to the Windows 8 taskbar.
    - Quickly access and search your installed applications
    - Adds Run... option via right-click menu
    - Adds Shutdown... option via right-click menu
    - Choose a custom "Start" button image

    System Requirements:
    - Windows 8 Consumer Preview 8250 (x86 or x64)
