    Microsoft Launches Web-Based Email Service

    Well, it looks alright. Unfortunately, for those of us who left years ago, and now have everything registered to our's too much work to change again. Plus, I've registered a domain name through Google, my wife and I have a Google Apps account and we have a shared family calendar that we use between our computers and smartphones. Unforunately, for MS, I'm tied to Google for the forseeable future.

    I like the UI a lot better than Hotmail.

    It's not working on Opera, my current browser of choice, so Gmail will have to remain for now.
