I'm gonna test W8 on my older Vista machine: that's a laptop that reached retirement but you can expect anything with newer OS and drivers.

Hi there
If you want a reasonable replacement to the start menu WITHOUT using any 3rd party apps have a look at my post in the W7 Forums -- I've made a couple of CUSTOM toolbars which bring up menus rather like the old W7 system but infinitely more "customisable" and IMO much better too.

(Mind you saying ANYTHING NICE about W8 on the W7 Forum almost qualifies you for PUBLIC EXECUTION !!).

Ignore the title -- just read the post as it explains how to "99% replicate" the menu.

I'm thinking I should join the W7 forums, I'm sure I'd fit in well over there.
