Classic Start Menu for Windows 7
Get all the features of Windows classic Start menu back into Windows 7! Seven Classic Start returns the convenience of Windows original Start menu to Windows 7 users, making the new system easier to master for users of Windows XP and Vista.
Oh, wait. There's a catch. They're actually charging (a whopping $25) for this utility. Unreal.
My advice: Get used to the real Start Menu and utilize Start Menu Search as often as possible.
Thanks to long time reader Rafael. :)
