Cool Tool: VisualEsxtop

Every once in a while I revise the page and this week it was time to add VisualEsxtop to the list of tools people should use.

Windows 7 Explorer for Windows 8

Windows 7 Explorer for Windows 8 is an excellent free tool which enables you to switch the Windows 8 start menu back to the Windows 7 one very clean way. Few months back you could read about classic menu for Widnows 8, which is a freeware tool too, but it adds it’s own menu at the top of Windows 8. Even if it adds more functions, it’s less clean that the solution I’m writing about today. --> Please see the rest on Vladan's blog : http://www.vladan.fr/windows-7-explorer-for-windows-8/
