This has been, without a doubt, the most intelligent, balanced, and 
interesting flame war I can remember in 20+ years of Internet lurking.  
But ironically there's one item that y'all agree on that I disagree 
with, at least in part.  It's this statement:

"I can't say I disagree with this too much... Yeah, the built in apps 
suck, but they've always sucked on Windows."

I think that the Win8 weather app is the best of any I've seen. Lots of 
info, 3 different weather services' forecasts, and the least obtrusive 
ads by far.  It almost makes the hassle of getting the tiles usefully 
arranged (and the obnoxious tiles removed) worthwhile.  I have it on my 

And the financial markets app (including its tile) is quite good.
