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.

Honestly, I don't see why some people think the start menu is so difficult to use or poorly designed. There's no getting around the fact that little kids to elderly seniors manage to use it just fine so how bad can it really be?

I propose that if you can't find what you need in more than a few seconds or a few clicks, the problem isn't the start menu, it's you.
