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.

fortigate picks up pokki.com as a malicious website.

after looking at the integrated "apps" and features. i'd be inclined to agree.

Their start menu looks an awful lot like the one in Elementary OS. I wonder which came first?
