It really makes me sad to see that people have such a hard time paying $5 for a piece of software they like

Wow all this outrage over 5 bucks? Damn you're a tough bunch.
You realize for $5 you can install it on as many machines as you have as long as it's for non-commercial use. So it's really worth it from that perspective. Like it or not someone has to pay the devs for their work, this is on a much higher level than classic shell. Start8 is a perfect match in look AND functionality of the Windows 7 start menu where classic shell is a half assed replacement.
I don't have $5 paying for a good piece of software ( I have an ipad with over 1000 apps) and I don't think anyone else does either, however its people like you who are helping the DLC Software mentality and are aiding its direction into mainstream. Stardock has made some great stuff over the years, but a $5 START MENU program? its nickle and dimeing the OS. If stuff like this is allowed and accepted by users whats to stop companies to start withholding other standard features and then charging for them afterwards. 2 words, horse armor. Don't let companies turn Windows into horse armor. Programs like start8 are handy for those who want a piece of Windows 7 but they shouldn't be trying to milk us for it.
