Start Menu Replacements for Windows 8

By Norman Chan

You have a few options.

Peter Bright of Arstechnica reviews five programs that bring back the Start Menu (or some equivalent application launcher) to Windows 8. The best of the bunch is StartIsBack ($3), but according to Bright, he actually won't use any of them. I've been happy with Start8 ($5) so far. If you're on Windows 8, are you using a Start Menu replacement, or are you just using the Start Screen?
