  1. They were thinking there's an app for that. Why build it and risk the issues they had building in e-mail functionality.
  2. Hi :)

    Nope it doesn't...another idiotic decision that makes me think that 8 will end up with the same awful reputation as Vista...

    Oh and the reason was financial, nothing else... (MS make more money and you have to pay )

    All the best Brett :)
  3. Well there are free alternatives like VLC media player and windows media classic but you have to get those after you install windows 8.
    They work well I guess.
