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.

I agree that Metro has potential. Potential as a catastrophy for Microsoft.

I'm using it on a slate and occationally on my desktop, since I have to deal with it as a developer in the near future.

Basically, it's mostly a piece of crap, both technically and as a UI. It kinda works on the slate, but on the desktop, it's an absolutely nonsensical approach.

I tend to be pro-MS, but this is not going to be pretty.
