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.

People are pissed because there's no start menu..


Well, the people that are pissed about the Start menu will never be happy until/unless MS puts it back in. How do I know this? Because 8+ months after Windows 8 was released, people are still bitching about it, despite there being free Start menu replacements available already.

Of course, they tell you they shouldn't have to download 3rd party tools to make the OS do what they want. Nevermind that Classic Shell was originally designed for Windows 7 ...
