I think it's a nice compromise between the full screen Metro start menu and the old Start Menu. Personally I prefer the Windows 7 style menu but for those who do use modern apps this looks pretty good.

You do not have to have the tiles open Metro Apps, you can put what ever you want in the tiles. We just chose to include some Metro Apps as the default list of tiles.

What I just saw in that video is what Windows 8/8.1 should of been.
Going to give this a try, looks really good.

*edit, installed it, clicked stuff, went to Metro apps, uninstalled it.

Nice update on the start menu, just don't like the fact it opens metro apps.
But that's personal opinion i guess.
