I just downloaded my first Win 8 app. I downloaded the MS Solitaire Games app. It is an admirable replacement for the original MS Games. I play Free Cell a lot and this was nice. Not great, but nice. It did not have options to allow a change of style or colors, which I would prefer, but overall a nice replacement.

This is basically my first experience with Win 8 apps.

I also tried to set up the Mail app, but I could not get it to accept my pop mail (At least it had the option now). It just never could access my Road Runner mail. I'm glad I use WLM on the desktop.
