You know, it’s hardly suprising that Microsoft have so many detractors. Sure, they’ve produced a user-friendly desktop environment that’s used by about 90% of the known universe, so they’re doing something right. It’s just that they seem to be trying to deliberately piss off non-MS users.
It’s also really annoying how they encode all links within the emails so that they open within a new frame still “within” Hotmail, like they don’t want to let you go or something. Hello? Using a tabbed browser here! I can stay in Hotmail and visit other websites at the same time! Tossers.
It’s free, so I suppose I shouldn’t complain too much, but seeing as they’ve screwed up the site layout now too (after the last site redesign – it now sucks balls) I really should try out an alternative. Or just use my own mail address with this hosting.
Balls to Hotmail.
