I tried this last night. Didn't like it, it made a start button that just took me to a list off all my apps.
That link also contained another link to make Windows boot straight to the desktop, but annoyingly the Explorer window would open up which you have to close so I undid that also.
I'll stick with classic shell, it gives me the traditional start button, shutdown menu, and links to my programs and apps.
