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.

Metro is the problem

The problem with Windows 8 is not the missing of a Start menu, but the whole Metro. A friend of mine just asked me "you must know how to delete this c**p forever, is there an exe or something???"
I see more and more people (because more and more people is replacing old machines) questioning the whole Metro idea. They don't want a 15" tablet, they want a notebook!
