If you've been trying out the early public build of Windows 8, you may be frustrated by the lack of a Start menu. After all, that thing's been around for ages, and for good reason.
Happily, software and game developer Stardock has come to the rescue and released a free application by the name of Start8 which adds the menu back in, and also a few related, handy options.
Even if you're not keen on betas, this should be one to keep in mind come release time.
