Hotmail's new "active view" uses Silverlight to allow photos to show in a fancy slideshow, as opposed to just as a series of attachments that need to be downloaded.

Office documents sent to Hotmail can be opened via Microsoft's new browser-based Office Web Apps, meaning that the recipient no longer needs their own copy of Office installed to view or edit documents.
