I am demoing it just to see what's its like. I tried the initial betas- one of the worst I have ever seen. Now, they seem to have cleaned it up. Boy does it load fast. Way faster than Yahoo Beta, and on a par with GM.

Opinions?

I can't stand any mail application/service that doesn't thread email's like Gmail. Since switching to Gmail it has quite possibly become the most useful feature and I can't get back to using the "old-fashioned" way.

It's quite weird, but I've never known anything else but Gmail. I have had a hotmail account (or five) for a long time, but they've only been used for MSN access.

Having said that, I have tried the new Live Hotmail. And I absolutely hate it. It's slow, it can't block spam to save its soul, and ultimately, it's just useless when you've got a Google account.

I agree with mambo. I got an important email to my old hotmail account from my parents at home and when I logged in the UI is like Outlook, which is too businessy for me. They shouldn't make it businessy because how many businesses will send mail which has
