I was surprised at how much it had to offer as well. I made an account over a year ago and just yesterday really found all the stuff it has.

Same here. Live has some nifty features, but it's not like I'm going to drop everything I currently use and use Live-only things. I'll look into some of the other features over the next week and see how well they integrate with each other.

Simple reason: Live is terribly slow compared to Google. Also, the new Hotmail interface, although much improved over the old one, still looks fugly and unintuitive compared to Gmail. No need for synchronized contacts here either.

I miss Outlook Express. Much faster than Live.
