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.

Anyways, how long do you think Metro will last? Suppose, given it's MS's hopeless grab at trying to be Apple in controlling hardware, software and getting it's percentage from all those bad-ass apps (presumably some might come along) and they, therefore, really really want to foist it on us. Back in the real world, even given it might work on tablets, I can't see it lasting...but, how long before they'd be forced to dump it as it's bound to sell as most new computers, as if by law, will come with it and the only 'real', apart from buying Mac's, opposing power in the market is enterprises. I'm sure they'll kill it but how long till that filters through to MS. Most enterprises will only be taking-up 7 in the next few years....
