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.

No it's not malware. Besides the Start Menu it offers its own environment to run HTML5 applications, as well as an app store. Pirate Storm is just a Pokki app: https://www.pokki.com/app/Pirate-Storm

Also, I actually thought about making a Pokki app once, and exchanged a few mails with one of the devs there and the guys are quite ok.

TL;DR: You don't know what you're talking about.
