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.

Unity, nevermind the fact that people have made clear they want *NOTHING* to do with them.
It's like they can't stand the fact that people in the *REAL WORLD* detest these UI designs.

Unity and Ubuntu seem to be doing fine...

As far as anecdotes go: I have around some people who use & like it. Also, go through recent Wikimedia stats ( ) - Ubuntu might be the the only non-Android distro really growing.
