"Hotmail LIVE! should have been stillborn!!!"
Pretty colors, if you miss the 80's
On 10/30, my Hotmail changed to Hotmail Live. I tried it a couple of years ago, didn't like it, & opted out. Now, Hotmail changed me without my permission. Hotmail Help didn't. When "Help"I finally responded, they said, so sorry, SOL, live with LIVE!
Hotmail Live is not compatible with Mozilla Firefox. After login, it immediately freezes everything. All you can do is CTRL-ALT-DEL, which shows 2 MSN Hotmail applications, both Not Responding. So I tried going in via IE, which worked(surprise, surprise), but is very slow, & has obviously been designed with color rather than content in mind. When I got a human on the so-called Help line, he said since I was using free Hotmail, he couldn't/wouldn't help. Looking on MYDIGITALLIFE.INFO I found that Oct 30 was the day that many people's accounts changed without their permission. Reviews are overwhelmingly scathing, & Microsoft doesn't give a damn.
