Start8 1.56

Adds a Start Menu to Windows 8

Windows 8 is now available (in preview and release editions) and has taken the Windows interface to a whole new level. Unfortunately, Windows 8 did not come with a desktop feature that the world makes use of billions times a day, the "Start" menu. Luckily, we have a solution! Start8 brings the "Start" menu back to Windows 8.
