    Anyway, I am not a Microsoftie, a “Googlie,” or a Yahooligan; rather, I am just looking for a reliable company to provide integrated services. I used to use my Hotmail account as a throw-away account for subscribing to contests and the like, but these days the spam filter, white lists, anti-virus, integration with Messenger, and customized pages like My MSN, it’s starting to become what I’ve been hoping for all along. With Domains.live.com, I can now use my “other” e-mail in the same manner and get all these great distributed, integrated services.

    Cool.
