Windows 8 Start Menu "Fixes"

As you may know, the latest version of Windows - Windows 8 - does away with the "traditional" Start Menu. Instead, there is a Start Screen with tile-like launchers for the various programs or apps. There is still a Windows 7-like Desktop present, but it's hidden from view when you start up. This has irritated many and inspired a bit of a cottage industry in various hacks and tweaks to restore a more traditional-looking Windows environment, and many are available free of charge. ExtremeTech has a round-up here.
