"StartIsBack' is one of the many Start Menu replacement applications available, however, for those wanting one that resembles a Windows 7 Start Menu, this is as close as you're going to get.
It has a good number of decent features and the cost, after trial, is fairly reasonable.

One keen feature is the ability to create desktop shortcuts of 'Metro' Apps simply by dragging and dropping:

I've been using Classic Shell since windows eight was released, and have never looked back. It more closely gives you a windows native start up option then any thing out there, and the price can't be beat!
