Start 8 makes all the difference for me

I've been testing the pre-release versions of Windows 8 since Feb., and hated it. Today after reading numerous posts about Start 8, I downloaded the free trial version, and I have to say that for me it makes all the difference. I never thought I'd say it, but Windows 8 with Start 8 is OK, and it definitely seems faster. Everything works like it did in Windows 7 again. Why MS didn't think to make something like Start 8 a part of Windows 8 is beyond my understanding, but thank goodness for Stardock having come up with it.
I haven't seen any mention of other programs like Start 8 and would be interested to know if any one has found such a thing. If not, I think MS should buy this program (like they did with Skype and numerous other things in the past) and incorporate it in Windows 9.
All the comments I've seen about Start 8 have been very positive, like mine. I still haven't come up with a reason to go to Windows 8, but at least I don't hate it any more.
