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 did groceries on the weekend and was shocked, SHOCKED I say, to find that there where several options to choose from in every product category.

Ok, jokes aside, if we're being honest then it's not every potential Linux based OS distribution versus X. We're comparing fragmentation to Windows; a single vendor's OS distribution. We need OS distributions which intent to compete for desktop installs.

Novell? Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop and Suse Linux Enterprise Server.

Red Hat? Red Hat Enterprise Linux (server) plus a desktop option.

Mandriva? Three versions when I was last in that world; Free, One and whatever the paid premium was.

Canonical? Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Ubuntu Server?

That's four major vendor options with a maximum of three product versions each? Should we look back at Microsoft's list of current version Windows OS SKU?
