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 guess about the only one I use is Calculator

And... they broke calculator in W7.
Now "programmer's mode" is separate from scientific. And switching between these modes clears the accumulator.

LOL, I'm definitely not a power user when it comes to calculator, which is probably why I never noticed ;)
