The Start screen in Windows 8 organizes your applications into groups of tiles. Launch8 adds the convenience of a quick access stationary dock on your Start screen. Now you’ll be able to drag and drop your favorite applications into Launch8 and quickly launch them no matter where you have swiped to on your Start screen.

 
Launch8 has a free 30 day trial, and the full version is $4.99.

and so is your irrational comment.

 

Anyway, the start screen serves as an app launcher, just like what docks do, so yeah, it's redundant here. But hey, I hope this gives way to more Windows 8 customization.

It's good to know the start screen is now customizable too. I think I'm the only one here who like it.

Hmmm, don't think this one is for me, but cool to see start screen customization. Perhaps some kind of tile customization would be more interesting. 

 

Anyways I tend to avoid metro when using W8.

Then organize it. Take your mouse, and move the tiles to where you want them.

No, I love it too. Much better than the old Start Menu.

Doesn't matter how neatly you organise shit, at the end of the day, it's still shit
