I just wanted to review Pokki – Windows 8 start menu replacement which I installed to replace the deeply broken Windows 8 Metro interface.
- It is free
- It is really slow and takes ages to load up.
- It has privacy problems – i.e. it records everything you type into the search and send it to their webservers.
- It mixes the Pokki app store results into the search results which is confusing and introduces lag into the process.
- It doesn’t automatically launch the desktop on startup.
Basically, the solution is to use Start8 which is much faster and doesn’t have any privacy problems.
