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.

This person, for one, will not be spending any my real, hard-earned money on this product.


I think I will be buying Windows 8, for two reasons: I just bought a month ago a new laptop so I'm eligible for the very low price deal, and because I want the performance improvements.

Undoubtedly 3rd - party solutions will appear to solve most of the issues with it, like e.g. Start8 ( http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/ ) already adds a custom Start-menu on the taskbar and allows one to boot straight to desktop instead of the silly Metro Start-menu.
