    They just need a cloud aggregator like Google Reader, with support for mobile devices like Blackberrys, and I'll e very close to switching.

    It's just metroized hotmail. There are so few changes that I don't think this warrants an announcement. If facebook wanted to change up the saturation of the colors and the font size, they would just do it. I guess microsoft just wants to look cool launching "new" "metroized" product. Updates are never as exciting.

    I will say this - it's extremely fast. Much nicer to work with than Hotmail.

    It's possibly under extreme light usage since it just came out. Time will tell if it continues to be fast.

    Oh my GOSH! I LOVE IT!!! It's whoa after whoa after whoa!

    I've already made an @outlook.com domain, but then I realized my current Live account has a 25 gig SkyDrive I'm using and that's what stopped a whole mitigation dead in it tracks. If I can just simply switch from my @live.com domain to an @outlook.com domain, my body will be pleased.

    IT'S JUST SO COOL!

    I really love it! The design is great, just like the Metro Mail app and Office preview, simple and elegant.
