Want to get rid of your Start menu to save some screen real estate? Or have quicker access to your menus to save a few clicks? Forum member siauw put up a link over in the forums to a program called 8start Launcher. I installed it and it looks really good – very customizable too!
Looks to be a good way to save digging thru the Start menu with the pen – or better yet, put in some Icons and it appears that it might be very touch friendly too!! (Touch untested)
