Well folks

I tried this beta, and IMHO this is not as useful as the Patchex7 mod.
many features from older start menu just not there yet.
would like to see the control panel link as a mrenu not window.
would like to see user options more like Classic shell.
ah well it is just a beta maybe it will get better as it progresses.
