I was just logging into my hotmail account, and a page popped up saying to try out Windows Live Mail, and that hotmail will be taken over by windows live mail? oh dear I already hate windows live messenger because its incredibly slow, and loaded with so much useless junk I'll never use. I managed to keep an older version of MSN on my computer back home, but my girlfriend has windows live messenger on her computer, and it really sucks. is the end of Hotmail? I've had my firstname.lastname@example.org email since 1997!
