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.

it is kind of true. the server people dont want to use it, but they're forced to use what is given to them. they have most of metro removed as a "desktop experience" package you can install. and the main graphical admin app is a desktop app.

but instead of a start menu, server 2012 has a metro menu. which is obviously less powerful than the start menu. so that is bad.
