i totally agree... i have been an avid hotmail user for many years now (with only a few glithes along the way!)... but, i am noticing a few problems with windows live (emails dont always show up! sometimes it takes a while for the page to load!) and now with the server being down!!! It seems Microsoft may be starting to fall from grace?
It will take a little while but i am thinking of changing everything to my gmail account!!!
Within the last 24hrs, hotmail has been down not just once, but twice!!!
Microsoft you are starting to get me mad, except with the xbox ( i need the 360, I will take donations from Microsoft to make me feel better).
But I already have 20 million e mail account (gmail, yahoo & etc), but I have been using hotmail as my default since college. I think I'm going to have to switch to my gmail......
