It's a long time since I've used the old SharePoint list component and for the most part, I've not missed it. Server to Server integration is slick and just works.
That said, the one thing that I do miss is support for folders - but whilst testing the new 9.0 Enterprise Edition I've noticed that folder support has been added in this latest release!
I was so excited I just had to share a little video of what it looks like
Maybe in the release after this, we'll get support for content types and metadata properties!
