    On the Final version it will be paid as Start8 I think. Typical of new Stardock products...

    But looks good app. :)

    Does this work on non activated windows 8's ? Might be a nice workaround

    It's patching stuff, so probably yes why not, unless they implement a check inside their tool to check for license to block on purpose.

    SO, it's safe to use this app as it only replaces images on that file? I've been seeking for this for ages. I wanted a more grey (more black) start screen

    Yes, I know. I wouldn't mess with any program that allows this type of customization without first backing up the files. So, the tool allows you to choose a dif background and dif colors and of the changes are only made in imageres, right? Any other file I should backup? :) In case anything goes wrong I can use the /sfc command and everything will be back to normal?

    You'd actually think you were the only one who thought of a mini Metro start menu?
