I've been thinking about downloading Classic Shell for my Win8 laptop, and was googling reviews of it when I noticed that apparently, there are two different Classic Shells.

This one: www.classicshell.net (free)

And this one: www.classicshell.com ($20)


Is the $20 one better than the free one?

as far as i'm aware the 20$ one isnt any better, because this program is open source its likely just a copy with a licensing requirement. Also as far as i'm aware this is probably against 'the rules' and Ivo (the developer of classic shell) may contact them regarding this matter...

The paid version is a very trimmed-down version of just the start menu. It doesn't have any of the settings.
It is violating several aspects of my intellectual property, and I have contacted the owners about the issue. If they don't comply soon I will take it up with their hosting company Rackspace.

Thanks for the replies! I'll definitely be going with the free version then.
