Submission + - Lenovo Brings a Start Menu to OEM Windows 8 PCs (computerworld.com)

jones_supa writes: Users want a real Start menu on Windows 8, and Lenovo, the world's biggest PC maker, is happy to oblige. It just announced that Lenovo PCs will come with the Pokki app, which includes a real Start button and menu, not the Start button which takes you to Start screen that will ship with Windows 8.1. Even worse for Microsoft: it lets users bypass the Windows Store to download apps and games, by using instead the Pokki store. The app will appear on nearly all shipping Lenovo Windows 8 devices, starting with the IdeaPad and IdeaCenter, and then by the Think line.
