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.

And "something between Abiword and Wordpad [...] preferably with a touch of Lyx or TeXmacs" would also be about better formatting (the LyX or TeXmacs part) - giving less manual control over it, really, that's large part of the problem: UIs making it straightforward to micro-manage documents, so people do just that and settle on it.

At least that de facto standard thing is beginning to change in places ( http://www.webmasterpro.de/portal/news/2010/02/05/international-ope... and doesn't your place has some non-trivial deployment projects?) ...too bad it's still mostly about Word-like application.
