Pokki has over 500,000 downloads. Seems like most of them wanted it for the start button. You might want it, for the apps, to use or to develop. Like it states bringing your favorite app to PC, it’s twitter, facebook and other light weight apps. The thing with twitter is you have to sign in to only see the twitter home page. But you start to see it’s use, when tweets appear on the notification area on start menu. It also has angry birds, it just runs like the angry birds for PC.

Overall it looks like an engaging start menu with facebook, twitter and gmail integration on the notification area, toggle web search on and off with desktop search. With more apps it could do well.
