Did you see it ?
It sucks, it can't be compared with Gmail at all.

Gmail's architectural design is very different than hotmail. At every level, gmail was taken care to be efficient.

Well when Google will takeover Microsoft, Hotmail/MSN will be scraped by Google. Better to stop using Hotmail/MSN.

I think the main difference is approach -- gmail is built from scratch using Ajax in mind and that too optimized with cookies etc. To refactor existing code of Hotmail to use asynch requests is not going to be as eficient and good as gmail which is built from scratch with smarter approach. I think Microsft also has smart coders to do amazing things....but changing architecture of an existing system based on some other ready product is never an easy task.

True Manish, sometime late starter has advantage and in this case Google has.

Actually I found Yahoomail beta is much sexier than gmail or
hotmail live.
hotmail live doesn't work in firefox/linux, but yahoomail beta works fine in linux.

yahoomail beta is very handy and user friendly than gmail. (like... drag n drop, real folders, right click features, ajax etc)
