My questions:
Is it really better than MS Windows 7 Start Menu? Is it worth to install? I also see the developer has Vista Start Menu and Classic Start Menu. What is the diff between 3 of these softwares? The more I read the software(s) features the more I don't understand.

The answer to your question Joel...in my opinion, No.

Windows 7 Start Menu is already very good and highly configurable. I would suggest users research the features/settings in the native Start Menu rather than install extra software to perform what is, for all intents and purposes, the same or very similar functions.

For example; have a look at this topic here: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=958

To view many of the Start Menu options available in Windows 7: Right click on the Start orb and select [b:27h28e59]Properties[/b:27h28e59]. Then click on the [b:27h28e59]Customize[/b:27h28e59] button.

Vista Start Menu was released primarily as a third party enhancement for the Start Menu in the XP operating system.
Classic Start Menu is for those nostalgic souls who miss the 'old' Classic style start menu. Definitely a retrogressive step.
Start Menu 7 is, in my opinion, an attempt to enhance something which doesn't really need improving and as such, is unnecessary bloat.

HTH,
Cheers....Jim
