This is what Outlook 2013 RT will look like.
Good to see these much needed features finally making it into Windows 8 but also really funny to watch MS furiously backtracking over all the controversial decisions they made that nobbled Win8 in the first place
Not sure how much use boot to desktop is on RT, if anything desktop would be better off being invisible on that device. One down in getting Outlook, one to go (domain join)
