Has anyone used classic shell with windows 8 or 8.1

It seems to put back the start menu.
Solved classic shell- is it safe

Also windows 8.1 ...there are some comments on the web saying MS no longer support it? saying only security patches will be issued only after you have downloaded an update.

You have to play don't you..I now have two start buttons on the task bar standard menu and new menu..

I believe the situation is that in order to continue to get updates a
specific update needed to be installed earlier this year, without it
the updates can't continue.

If you are currently receiving windows 8.1 updates you are probably all set.

Yes...within about half an hour after installing 8.1.
I didn't bother trying to get my head around the new UI.
Classic Shell is a must have.
