Windows8 startmenu for XP and Win7 by PeterRollar Windows8 startmenu for XP and Win7 by PeterRollar
Windows8 "startmenu" for Xp, Vista and Windows7.
This is a Vistart skin which simulates the Win8 startmenu. What are the benefits? No changes of your system. You can easily try it, and remove it, if you don't like it.
Check it out.:)

How to use? Download the exe from Leesoft. Unzip the content of this deviation and add the exe. Hover over the upper right corner of the startmenu brings up a little red square which opens the options menu. That's all.
If you want to have another targets for the buttons, simply edit the Settings XML file with the targets of your choice. In example you can add a shortcut to your Rainmeter to activate it from this menu. It's not the fast switch like the original, but better than nothing.:D

Screenshots are taken from my XP SP3 system.

:new: Lightly updated graphics and XML files.
:new: Leesoft doesn't allow the redistribution of their executables any longer. So you have to download the exe here [link] if you want to use this skin.

No redistribution in Transformationpacks/Skinpacks allowed!

CAUTION
BE CAREFUL WHILE INSTALLING VISTART. NEVER, REALLY NEVER INSTALL BABYLON TOOLBAR. IT IS A TRASHY MALWARE WHICH POSSIBLY MESSES UP YOUR COMPUTER. GOOGLE FOR IT TO SEE WHAT I MEAN.
Take care.

Tried it and it still works.:)Install Vistart. It will be in the program folder. Make a copy of it, and remove the resources folder, the rollover folder and the settings file from the copy. Copy and paste the three files of this deviation to the same place. Doubleclick the Vistart exe. That's all.:D
