Just install Classic Shell and you don't need to jump through a bunch of hoops. The Start button just shows up.
Better yet don't buy or install Windows 8. That is one way to let MS know you are not in favor of the new UI on traditional computers. And maybe they will Re-Think this totally stupid UI for a Real Computer.
You have to get the OEMs to cooperate to avoid Win 8. So far, they are not doing so ...even to the point of cancelling an order for Win 7 Pro saying the chosen video card no longer exists...but you can get it on the same computer with Windows 8. You want Win 7 then tough...you have no choice in video card and no choice to get nVidia instead of ATI.--
