Microsoft did the impossible: the new Hotmail is fantastic.
It’s easy to hate on Microsoft. (A Google search for “why I hate Microsoft” gives 20MM+ results.) But they’ve given Hotmail a makeover, and damn does it look good! As Gizmodo says, “Hotmail-which-is-now-Outlook doesn’t look like it crawled out of a late 90s sex dungeon, pulling its own cluttered, woefully-designed entrails in tow… It might be the handsomest webmail in the land." So dig up your old Hotmail password and try it out. I don’t know how long I’ll stick with it, but I’m definitely willing to try it out!
