        I just wrote a howto on Classic Shell. The forum won't let me post the URL yet, but search "How to Add a Windows 8 Start Menu". It just got posted.

          The article referred to is by Trevor Pott (Astlor) on the main site:

          IMHO a pity it requires 3rd party add ins -- can anyone in Microsoft remember the built in option in Windows XP to switch to the "Classic" (Windows 2000) start menu?
