Stardock’s Start8 in USA Today Article

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

USA Today has an article about the departure of Microsoft Executive, Steven Sinofsky, the Windows 8 start menu, and how Stardock’s Start8 has brought back the start menu to users.

“Software company Stardock has sold tens of thousands of copies of Start8, a $5 application that restores a fully functioning Windows 7 Start Menu interface to new Windows 8 PCs. Stardock has distributed tens of thousands more free trial versions, says Kris Kwilas, Stardock's vice president of technology.

"We were having some success with word of mouth before the Windows 8 release, and since the release, the floodgates have been opened, and the demand is surprising even us," Kwilas says. "It tells me that early adopters of Windows 8 feel there's something missing -- a comfort factor for how they want to use their PCs, vs. how Microsoft has decided for them how they should use their computers."
