Start Is Back - 2.1 release

Recommended Posts

Why would you consider this better than Ex7forW8?

Ex7 prevents any part of metro from even loading, saving memory and cpu. Start Is Back seems to have both???

How is your program better in terms of performance and functionality?

It's better because it doesn't gimp the system. Unfortunately there are some Metro interfaces that are just apart of WIn8 and you will need. Also, as much as most of us hate Metro...there will be some useful Metro apps....some day So we want a way to bring up Metro WHEN WE WANT IT. Instead of being beat in the face with it. This does exactly that.

It's also less obtrusive and doesn't require people to go digging around for Win7 files. Both major pluses.

But metro still loads at startup with "Start is Back" correct?

Metro is "loaded" but you *NEVER* see it. It goes directly to Desktop immediately - you never even notice Metro unless you purposefully go to it on your own.

Why don't you try it out and see what the hoopla is about. I very much respected Ex7 - you do know that both SiB and Ex7 are both by Tihiy, right? And I had tested Ex7 and was very impressed, but it's more of a hack - a great hack but a hack nonetheless, than this very clean implementation. Plus it gives more features already than Ex7 and will probably give even more in the very near future.

They are doing it again :realmad:

It ticks me off, too, for Tihiy's sake.

Nah, they're helping him out. He will just make it stronger and stronger. The only version that matters is final and they won't hack that. They only hack beta to preserve it.
