Just want to share with anyone still longing for a good old Start menu experience.

I used to have Start Menu 8 v1.2.1 installed on my Win 8 Pro and it worked great.
Then I upgraded to Win 8.1 Pro rtm and the Start menu 8 was not compatible.

Yesterday I found out that a new version of Start Menu 8 by IOBit was released, claiming it is completely compatible to Win 8.1 rtm.
I installed it, just to see if it is true.
It works. Looks and works just like Win 7.

The software is free.
See screenshot..........In keeping with the new OS, I chose a different Start button instead of the traditional circular orb.
