Depends on what kind of work you got to do on it

Besides that, both Classic Shell (free) and Stardock's Start8 works much better than Iobit's start menu.

This thing actually makes win8 usable.
Very good little app.

Makes me wonder how I managed for the past 8 months of running it daily at work.. I don't find it difficult(!) Choice is good though, no matter how dubious

Wow this is a very nice Start menu app. I am using 8 and I had Pokki installed by accident, but I kept it until I had time to find something better. Visited Neowin today and voila, I saw this link took a look at the screenshots and I am glad I did.

Though I wonder how they basically duplicated the look and style of the Windows 7 start menu, and how Microsoft isn't all over them. But hey I ma happy. My "start" is back for those times I do need it. The main thing I miss was the search window.
