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.

With the latest release, I loved the simplified desktop and doing away with Aero. My beef though, was Metro. The apps might be good for small devices but on a laptop/PC they were just not suited.

I reverted to Windows 7 but more due to compatibility issues with equipment I was testing with.

If we could get start button back with the Windows 8 Desktop by passing Metro, I would be fine with that for an OS update.
