Start8 Makes it almost exactly like win 7. You will have the exact same start Menu back. You can click one button to shutdown, you can disable metro start menu / hot corners.dan wrote:
does start 8 make it exactly like win 7? will it work for 8.1?
What Start8 doesn't do is recreate UI that doesn't exist in win8 anymore. For example, to add a wireless network, you have to use the charm bar like interface, etc.
In terms of Win 8.1 compatibility, I am not sure. The Start8 team had been pretty decent (not great, not bad) at updating Start8 for compatibility. It did take them a month to update Start8 to be compatible with Win 8.1 Preview (after the preview was released to MSDN). Same thing for Win 8.1 RTM. In short, it'll probably take one month (starting from the day Microsoft release a version to MSDN) for the Start8 team to make a fully compatible version. May be you can't live with it. For most people, that should be ok.
Font Resizing in Win8 desktop works just like windows 7, Font resizing in Metro works like an iPad.dan wrote: what about 4k display and resizing fonts
