If people want it, why not? Heck, I'm using it.

Hey davidhk129, just so you know, it's not free. It's a 30 day trial and then cost $4.99.

I don't know what I did.
I gave the wrong link.
You are right. That one is NOT free, and I did not use it.

I meant to suggest this one which I do use ... Start Menu 8 by IObit

The variety of third party start menus are, as far as I know, all "non" Apps, and, by their nature, will remain so. I don't see he App store being an issue as they have no affiliation there.

Um... people can add desktop apps on the winstore.

No dispute here. I was responding to your post. As I said, why worry? They can be all downloaded direct from the web.
FWIW. They are mostly already in the store. There isn't a great deal of supervision as to what can be there, so I guess they will remain.
