I fnally paid he $5 for Start8 because I just couldn't take the frequent crashing of metro/modern/tileworld apps crashing so often. Mail is terrible, as is the browser. News and People are also a wreck. Calendar seems okay, but the others frequently hang and need to be restarted. anyone else notice this? I'm hoping it has something to do with the 8.1 preview, but I'm not sure. also seems like the Mail app has slowed down a ton - deleting messages can take several seconds.
