    As other manufactures already did that shortly after Win 8 GA, i would say Lenovo is late :D.

    Good to know. Its not a native start menu/button like with w7 or start8 etc. but good enough I suppose. I wonder why they didnt go with Start8? Startdock is a well known company and been around for along time now. interesting.

    It probably wont be nearly as good as StartIsBack.

    Nope...it definitely isn´t. SiB is hard to compete, if it´s even possible.

    Better late then never, and it's integrated!

    Than first step here would be to uninstall it :D. I´d rather use Classic Shell before this :cool2:.

    I highly doubt Microsoft would let them truly integrate it. As S1ave77 mentioned, it will probably be an .msi installer.

    Truely integrating stuff like that into the Windows operating system is probably illegal under copyright law.

    I like win-X, but that is not the point.
    Microsoft refuses to bring the start menu back, Lenovo is the first to integrate.
    In the article they supposedly state that they will listen to customers, something Microsoft does not!

    Would highly guess, integrated means it´s part of the recovery WIM. Only integration so far is SiB, as it uses the native Windows code in Win 8.

    Yep, definitely like the idea of having a fully functional start menu without needing any additional processes or services to run in background :good3:.
