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.

Desktops will continue to rule for content creation (which includes tools like CAD, etc.) but MS will see less and less revenue from those (us) people. It's entirely possible that we content creators will have to transition to Linux or use a server OS on our desktops.


They will probably call it Windows for Workstations and charge $100 per CPU (core) annual licence fee.
