Today I woke up to check my email and found some shitty looking impersonator called Outlook where my Hotmail used to be. I knew this day would come though, having been force fed Outlook briefly over a month ago and quickly switched back. And there were the warnings that Microsoft would drag their Hotmail users over to Outlook kicking and screaming if they had to. I had half hoped Microsoft would come to it's senses and realize that it was going to piss quite a few people off with this major change to the interface, but then that has not stopped them before. Is it too much to ask to just have the OPTION of using the old interface? Maybe they think people would love them if they just HAD to spend more time getting to know Outlook webmail, à la the Stockholm syndrome? Whats not to love after all, it has all the charisma of a box of paper napkins (store brand) - not that hotmail was all that snazzy either, but at least it's flair was more than just a primary color. Maybe it is just me though, maybe I am just a luddite who hates new things (probably true, I don't like new flu viruses every year). Oh wait, it sounds like Sandra has a problem with it too, so that makes at least 2 people who hate this like the spawn of the pits of Mordor. Whats that Microsoft? - we can't switch back now, but if we have issues we can let you know? Well thank you for the concern. To you Microsoft, I say "Nee!" and "NEE!" again - now bring me a shrubbery, a nice one (and PLEASE gimme the old Hotmail back)!
