    Classic Shell is a great application! Be sure to download it from sourceforge! We should be able to pay for a non-GPL license instead of upgrade to a proprietary application. I dislike the dishonesty it now does by suggesting to upgrade with no license change being identified. It feels like they are disbanding the GPL version in favor for a proprietary non-open source version. Even if the source was shown under a proprietary-only license, I could at least determine if it contains spyware or adware. Not to mention, I am interested in learning and supporting it's source code to the features I like. We need to donate for the GPL code, or pay for a open-source proprietary version. But not until the suggested upgrade specifies the intent. Even if it becomes nagware (with the GPL source-code, we can disable the nagware). Or we need to fork this code (donations, or large portion thereof, still going towards the original owner).

    This is a good product. In Windows 7, you can get the classic start menu back. Something that existed even in Vista. In Windows 8, you get a start menu. Now with 8.1 coming out, I will still use Classic Shell simply because I want control over my start menu. I do have a compatibility issue with Novell ZenWorks 11.2 and right-clicking a ZenWorks icon revels a gray context menu with no text. I took a star off for that since there has been a ticket for it since 2012 and no progress. We still use Classic Shell and I still highly recommend using it!!!!
