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.

If they really cared about the lack of a "Start Menu", Lenovo would have instead opted for the free and open source Classic Shell project.


Eh, bloatware is bloatware. I'd rather them ship with a vanilla install and let customers download whatever Start menu replacements they want, assuming they actually want one. Screw these OEMs who think they know best what I should or should not have installed out of the box. Don't even get me started on Android ;)
