Windows Pokki, a Start menu replacement for Windows 8, will be installed on all Lenovo PCs.

We’re excited to announce that the #1 PC maker in the world, Lenovo, will be shipping Pokki on new Windows 8 devices worldwide! In other words, you’ll soon be able to buy a brand new Lenovo laptop or desktop with our full Pokki software suite integrated and ready to use out-of-the-box!

Windows 8 has loads of problems, but the lack of the Start menu is not one of them. The fact that Metro - and more importantly - its applications still suck, however, is.

I don't care how boring or dull tiles are. Seriously.
I care how efficiently i can get work done. WELL!
With tiles it's less efficient than icons.

Specially moving tiles (they ain't that boring in fact!)


Same thing for the start menu.. yeah right i know win+x and a bunch of shortcut, but the average joe who's *working* with the computer (and not just watching fucking tiles) doesn't. And that's where the start menu is just fine.


Now don't get me wrong, the tiles seems fine on mobile/tablet.
