Stardock have created an application that inserts a Window’s start button into the Windows 8 task bar. Engadget are reporting Stardock have sold ‘tens of thousands’ of copies of the app. So congratulations to Stardock The app is only $5 (a very sensible price!) so if you are missing the start button I suggest you go and grab a copy.
You can also select additional frameworks that you would like to include such as jQuery, Mootools, three.js.
Windows 8 Snap view is the process by which two apps can be displayed, or docked, side-by-side in Windows 8. These apps can consists of two Metro-style apps or one Metro style app and one legacy Windows app. The Snap View, takes up 320 pixels of the on-screen real estate, while the rightmost app takes up the rest.
When developing a Windows 8 Metro app you are required to cater for Snap view if you wish to submit your app to the Windows 8 app store.
