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 move will mean purchases moving from Microft to RedHat(OS), IBM(MQ) and Oracle(database).

If enough vote with their feet then perhaps with SP1 we might get back what they've taken away.


Before that happens Ballmer and Sinofsky will be deemed idiots of the year for ignoring enterprise in a hopeless attempt at catching the iPad. The fact that they are even forcing Metro on Server shows how far off the rails into crazyland they have gone.

Sinofsky is afraid of pirates downloading Server 2012 in an attempt at avoiding Metro-down-your-throat. Nothing says quality software like trying to ensure that even pirates have no choice. Sinofsky is a little Steve-Jobs wannabe dictator who knows damn well that letting the people choose would mean a majority vote against him. That's why he is forcing it.

Can't wait til the little fucking pest is removed by shareholders.
