Windows Ars Technica is running an interesting article about the Mail application on Windows 8. It's one of the first party Metro applications, and Ars' conclusion is that it's really, really not up to snuff - it can't even compare favourably to the mail application on Windows Phone. The sad thing is, however - this applies to virtually all Metro applications.

Buggy applications in a pre-release is hardly surprising, and not necessarily majorly concerning.

For some people (like me) there is going to be a more fundamental issue - Metro applications simply do not behave and function in the way I expect and need of applications running on a "full fat" PC.

That's not just a bug that can be fixed, it's part of the basic design of what it means to be a Metro application, and they can't change that.
