Dear Ivo and team,

Thank you for a great solution. I just saw a nice suggestion for MS by Jay Machalani. He has a good new Metro/Modern UI layout for the Start menu, both vertical and horizontal:

> http://static.squarespace.com/static/52 ... ormat=500w

Can you provide it as a skin for the next release?

Thanks again,
~g

It is very doubtful that Ivo will be including this any time soon, however both Display fusion, and Start8 incorporate a similar feature (of the 2 I would personally recommend display fusion)

Both however have free trials If you would like to try them out

There is no way provided by Microsoft for third party programs to incorporate Live Tiles. Also, the Metro design doesn't blend in with the look of the Desktop. The usability of the tiles in his concept screenshots also doesn't look great because many items have only icons, no textual labels. Maybe you will find the app called Start Menu Reviver by ReviverSoft closer to what you want. This isn't even close to what Classic Shell's goals are.
