    Yup, looks like this will do the trick, similar method to installing the XP black third party theme

    Nope, just something I knocked up in Photoshop a few weeks back to see how it would look, I'm honoured that it looks realistic enough to resemble a real screenshot, MS please feel free to copy and make me a happy user

    Are MS actually listening to their core market?

    At the moment it's arrgghhhh Metro with Windows 8!

    Soon it'll be arrgghhhh Metro, but oohhh the Start Menu. Click away and it returns you to Metro!

    Microsoft aren't listening at all. It's what users do with the Start Menu that matters!

    Companies who've made custom Start Menus must be on the edge of their seat whether or not they'll be cashing in a few more years.

    No you've got it all wrong, we have to listen to MS to find out how we want to use our devices.

    Exactly - its not just the Start BNutton people want - its the actual menu that goes with the button!

    We'll be listening all right - by avoiding 8.x and either staying on Windows 7 or switching OS!
