    AND ITS FASTER!!
    No placebo effect here, it loaded my messages both initially and as I scrolled much faster. Quick filtering between all and unread. And styled slightly different.

    Also, I noticed it has a search button out front and center (like hulu.) I think this is good because 99% of the bad reviews of the Netflix app are people unable to figure out how to use the search paradigm. I love that Hulu and Mail, pop out the Charms Bar search, as if to slowly train people to look there for it.

    While long overdue, I really like the update. My favorite new feature is being able to send and reply to email with your Outlook alias.

    You mean they're functional, without useless eye candy? Yes, yes they are.

    I dunno about you, but I'm interested in the content. Not the crap around the borders.

    No. I mean its less functional and uglier than using the browser.

    I think that's a problem, since there already are too many things called Outlook. Naming web-based email and a desktop email client by the same name already confuses users.

    Microsoft needs simpler, less confusing product names and product lines.

    I Think they should to. I don't see how it would confuse customers and would unify everything

    To be honest I never see the ModernUI screen on my W8 desktop PC except on reboots because I stay completely in desktop. I prefer using the web based mail in the desktop browser for both Gmail and Outlook. If I was using a W8 tablet I'd make more use of that side of the OS
