Hotmail -> Outlook

There's now an Outlook.com you can sign into using your hotmail account, looks a damn site better than the hotmail webmail page, far less busy and more metro. However should you sign into it hotmail will forward you onto Outlook.com for webmail from then on.

I think you can open excel documents and like in it, use office web apps. You do get Sky drive with it, which is 9GB of storage for whatever you want.

Microsoft are slowly going to phase out Hotmail and turn it into Outlook so this will be how all Hotmail accounts will look soon.

Yeah, I think they're ditching the windows live thing.

Will they be converting all the hotmail email addresses to @outlook.com?

Wouldn't that fuck up everything you've got associated with that account though?

Nah, its still associated with the @hotmail.com address but you can also have an @outlook.com address too.

Jesus. It's a bit bright and imposing to the eye. I like it though, still looks way better than Hotmail.

Are they going to be completely rebranding MSN in the process then?

You'd assume so, everything Microsoft seems to be going that style.
