Am I the only one who remembers using Hotmail before it belonged to Microsoft? anyone else think it was better then? (I'm not comparing the Hotmail of today and the pre-Microsoft Hotmail, I'm comparing the pre-Microsoft Hotmail and what Microsoft did to it in the first few months/years after buying it. Today's Hotmail's a whole other beast)
