    "Brings the Start Screen and Desktop Together"

    April 8, 2013  |   By Imogen7Ryan


    It is great to open Win 8 Apps in a window on the desktop, it doesn't feel like such a separation. I really like that you can pin apps to the task bar. I haven't even fully used all of Modern Mix's features yet, but what I see so far, they have done a cracking job.


    Not really any, but there is always room for improvement as with everything.


    Using Modern Mix WITH the Start Button would lead to an even better Windows 8 user experience. I am yet to try both together but I think I will now especially if Apps can be pinned to the start menu too, then it would be near enough perfect. Good job Stardock!
