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.

the apps built into windows were never a windows strength. they are a joke really. how many jokes can be told about solitaire or internet explorer. please.


I was just about to say this. Who uses ANY of the built-in Windows apps anyway?

- Internet Explorer? Crap
- Media Player? Crap
- Windows Explorer? Brings the crappiness to a whole new level
- Paint? LMAO
- Mail? Not even included in Windows 7

Hell, even Notepad is pretty lame. I guess about the only one I use is Calculator, as it generally does what I need it to do (which, admittedly isn't much).
