I don't use this one, its interface looks a bit clumsy.
But fascinating to see so many updated Start Menu replacements coming out to coincide with the release of Win8.1.
When will MS realise that many desktop users regard them as necessary - why try to force a UI designed for a phone/tablet (and which therefore steals the entire screen) onto desktop users?
In this regard, it's so odd that a right-click on the Win8.1 "start button" (not) provides a long list of options to do almost anything else one might want to do, EXCEPT directly to start an app.
