Windows Live Mail

I got an invite from MSN to using their new, well not so new on the web anyway Live Mail. I was surprised to get a VIP treatment from MS, as in normal terms they never reply to my “help” emails. Anyway, the whole“Live” thing is a big wake-up-knee-jerk reaction to what Google has managed to achieve over the years. Google as given simplicity a whole new meaning, the’ve prooved people dont go for colours, they need performance.

Unfortunately MS hasn’t learnt much from that. The Live thing is full of colours and they sound fancy but they still lack performance. The whole thing AJAX is good for web-mail, only if the concept is write. I wont comment on it too soon as its still in cliched Beta. But I am not much impressed to switch back to MS.
