On October 21, 2012 Microsoft released it’s latest operating system known as Windows 8. However, to their utter dismay, the fanfare was substantially less than what they were hoping for. This downturn in customer approval was partially due to the fact that Microsoft took customer relations for granted and stripped the start menu from it’s operating system. This left their loyal user-base literally scratching their heads, wondering how to make it work.
In response Stardock, who saw an opportunity to make things better for Windows 8 users subsequently released Start8, an aftermarket Start Menu replacement for Windows 8 which had the same look and feel as the Windows 7 start menu.
Over the last couple of years, Microsoft has been witness to the biggest mass-exodus from their once thriving user-base since Windows Vista. However, they have since taken public opinion into their design process and reintroduced the Start Menu into Windows 10.
Stardock isn’t taking this lying down though. In fact, they are releasing a start menu (aptly named Start10) for Windows 10 as well, with some enhancements that will give the Microsoft start menu a run for it’s money.
