This is a great app to customise the start menu in Win 8 and I'm enjoying using it.  Top marks to Stardock for the innovation and effort.

Well darn. I was hoping I could use this to put the Lego/Toys "R Us looking start screen on Windows 7.
Now I'll never get my PC to look like a phone. 
'Tis ok, I would look silly holding my monitor up to my ear anyway.

Now I'll never get my PC to look like a phone.

Never mind, it's not all it's cracked up to be... holding your PC up to yer ear, that is.  First your arm starts aching, then your shoulder, then your neck... and look out, once it gets that far, getting to the neck ache, that is, cos you're at risk of dropping a perfectly good PC and effing it up.

Besides, it seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to, to get your PC to look like a phone, that is, when for just 40 bucks you can experience the joy of the real thing.  Yes, purchase your copy of Win 8 today and save yourself the pain above.  ^
