"Microsoft fans will like"

January 23, 2009  |  By jscott418

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Nice Mail program

Cons

I downloaded just the Live mail program but on two computers a Laptop and a Desktop the program seem to cause Vista to shutdown unexpectedly. Neither computer had the problem before installing.

Summary

Its a good suite of Microsoft products if your not happy with using a web browser for mail and want something more like Outlook. The problem like I said is that it appears to make some computers unstable?

"Hotmail LIVE! should have been stillborn!!!"

November 05, 2008  |  By love240s

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Pretty colors, if you miss the 80's

Cons

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!

Summary

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.

"Easy"

Pros

The suite components are easy to use and they look good too. I use the live messenger, live mail and the live photo gallery, and it is the best in its class i think

Cons

The color schemes are not perfectly custumizeble, but it's only a bagatel

"Windows Live"

June 02, 2008  |  By adamgrant19

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None

Cons

I am talking to friends for about 1 hour then Windows Live Messenger maxes my CPU and locks up my computer so I have to close it. I don't know why it does that I tried to reinstall it but does the same. I don't even have to be using and it will do that too. So I will stick to the older version intill this is fixed.
