Windows Live vs Yahoo!-Who is better OVERALL?

Which do you think is best in total? I'm not talking about just the messenger apps,or their search engines,but about all their services head-to-head against each other and who comes out the winner.

Now i know this was posted at a time where Microsoft is just coming off of dropping their offers to acquire Yahoo!,but this can still be spoken of either way.

Neither one

In reply to: Windows Live vs Yahoo!-Who is better OVERALL?

Both sites offer the same type of services. I had trouble with both at different times.
If you ask me to compare server bases, I would say that yahoo is better.
If it was user compatibility, I would say msn.
Neither has that great of a mail agent or a search agent. Yahoo does have the integrated messenger for the web.

windows live vs yahoo

Windows live comes w/too much stuff. I do not like windows live it doesn't look good and as seems to be the case w/microsoft apps: memory users and resource hogs.

Yahoo has some new snazzy stationary, clean interface and cute little 'Liam'. I think they have gotten in trouble w/privacy issues-now they seem more user-friendly w/this new version of 07/09.

I am a proud windows user so its just natural that i "have" to have one to get some Microsoft services. its not that bad, but i've never tried yahoo either.
