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.

Yeah, I was thinking the exact same thing.

I would have thought they'd be more savvy than to brag about the user data they're raping but as most people don't care about privacy unless the implications are spelt out they know there's next to no harm to them in grabbing usage data (for our benefit of course).

Outgoing firewalls have never been so busy.
