Windows Pokki is a start menu replacement for Windows - and it has already been downloaded 1.5 million times for Windows 8. "Since the launch of Windows 8, we've seen over 1.5 million Pokki downloads on the new OS itself and users opening the Pokki Menu an average of 10 times a day. These early numbers demonstrate that users enjoy being able to instantly access and discover apps, straight from the desktop." And this is just one of the countless replacements. Microsoft should've never kept the traditional desktop in there - they've given users the ability to escape Metro, and this will only hurt the new environment.

I hate that video.
If you break down everything he says it comes out as "it's broken because I couldn't figure out how to do it"
I'll concede to his review that the discoverability is pretty awful, but to say that the whole OS is unusable because he didn't bother to find out how the new behaviours work is a bit of a stretch.

Personally I prefer win8 to win7. I realise I'm in the minority and any post I make is not going to change a single mind. But it's an easier adjustment than I had when I first tried Linux after being exclusively a Windows user, and I had a lot less reading to do before becoming productive.
