Microsoft Microsoft launched a preview of Outlook.com - a Metro web email client that will eventually replace Hotmail. Looks pretty good (but then, that's Metro for you). Ironically, it seems to work better, and is more smooth, than the mail client in Windows 8. Would be awesome - although obviously unlikely - if Microsoft allowed you to add accounts to Outlook.com (instead of being tied to your Microsoft account). I'd love to use this for my personal email account. Update: I'm being an idiot - you can actually do this! Nice.

It looks ok, but it struck me - why the 'oldmail' on the sketchboard looks exactly like gmail? ;)

EDIT: one issue with the MS service tho -- they don't use IMAP -- huuuuge problem...
