As I mentioned earlier, I been using hotmail for a long time and most of my friends have my hotmail address only. Also some outsiders including those I lost their contacts. So I still have to use my hotmail account.
I registered it in 1999 and AT
THAT TIME, hotmail was quite good. At least not as bad as it is NOW.
Now I use my yahoo account more often but still I use my hotmail. So both.
Just because its free doesn't mean that they have to be so mean..... Yahoo is a lot better!
