Re: Start menu

That code may be useful, but a large part of the challenge is to implement the correct COM interfaces. I don't think Classic Shell does this, so there's still some research needed.

Re: Windows 8 desktop theme

In the future release, there is a new theme near from Win8 theme, named "Modern".
For the start menu, I think start8 or Classic Shell (maybe an old release) can make the change, if the application works.

Re: Unimplemented features hinted at in latest build.

Would it be possible to implement source code from Classic Shell? I believe it is open source (old versions before 3.6.9 are). https://sourceforge.net/projects/classicshell/files/Archive%20-%20old%20versions/Version%201.0.0%20general%20release/ClassicShellSrc_1_0_0.zip/download ...
