Lenovo to preinstall Windows 8 Start menu replacement on its PCs

Posted on Friday, August 23 2013 @ 13:21:56 CEST by

TechSpot reports Chinese PC maker Lenovo has closed a deal with SweetLabs to preinstall the "Pokki" Windows 8 Start menu replacement on its Windows 8 machines:
San Diego-based SweetLabs, the company behind Pokki today announced a deal with the Chinese computer vendor to preinstall their app on new Windows 8 machines around the world. That’s quite a coup considering Lenovo is now the largest PC manufacturer worldwide; having the functionality out-of-the-box will enable the company to reach millions of users who otherwise wouldn’t have bothered to look for a Start menu replacement.

Perhaps more significantly, SweetLabs stands to gain an important piece of the app store market on Windows. You see, aside from providing quick access to installed applications and things like the Windows control panel, Pokki features its own app distribution platform.
