And with the enhancements that Stardock’s Start8 solution offer, not only will customers be getting all of the great upgrades that come with Windows 8, but they’ll also be getting some of the functionality they’ve become familiar with from Windows 7.”

In addition to the new features, enhanced access to apps through the new Modern UI, and multitude of other enhancements made available by Windows 8, Velocity Micro will also be offering Stardock’s Start8 App as an option on all systems.
