    I wasn't commenting on StartIsBack (I don't use it, so I'm in no position to). I was making the point that unless we embrace change and go with the new versions of Windows 10 within 18 months of release the underlying Windows OS itself becomes a security risk.
    I do not buy that, a Window's user is free to run any legit Program that will run on it.

    Of course they are. MS isn't supposed to stop development in case it breaks one of the thousands of programs that run on Windows though. That is why Classic Shell development stopped - MS kept moving the goalposts so fast the guy couldn't be bothered any more. And who can blame him? No-one.

    Problem with Windows 10 is either you keep with their rolling update program or drop out.

    If you drop out you have only 2 options - both of which are inferior - Windows 7 (only supported for 2 years even if it works on current hardware) or Linux (which is too niche to contemplate for most home uses).

    So logically you stay with 10 and hope that next upgrade doesn't withdraw support for your hardware and/or software.

    There is no other choice.

    Concerning Classic shell, I do believe MS actively works against alternative Start menu replacements in order to force acceptance of their design choices.

    No proof obviously but sure is odd of them to constantly need to change things that happen to break functionality of something such as this.

    Does Stardock’s menu replacement suffer the same problems?

    I've been using Stardock's Start Menu replacement since Start8 came out during the beta period for that OS. They seem to stay on top of the release cycle. But they are a fully professional, long-time software development company, not somebody doing software on a hobbyist basis. They also charge for Start8 (and Start10, though it's quite cheap) whereas Classic Shell has always been free.
    HTH,

    No, I did not, good Sir...
    Sorry...
    Thought you meant an app.
