    Who else has had their regular Hotmail account "converted" to a Windows Live Mail account?

    I ask, because just about everybody that has, has reported the performance to be like treacle.

    Doing anything, clicking anything, takes forever.

    This is the final product, not beta.

    You can switch back to the 'classic' version, the is a link at the bottom left of the screen to switch back and another one underneath the graphic that shows your mailbox usage stats.

    You can switch back to classic mode mate. It's in the options somewhere.

    I prefer the new UI. :smashin:

    Yeah, i've switched back to the classic view, as the enhanced is just too damn slow.

    This is using both a dual-core laptop, and a 64-bit machine, using a 8mb line or a works line which is stupidly fast.

    I had to re-activate my old hotmail account for something yesterday and it really is still terrible. I always hated the slowness and rubbish spam filter. Gmail is so much quicker and easier to use.

    much prefer it. Applied to get on the beta as soon as I could, and haven't had many issues with it at all (apart from at first it wouldn't work in firefox - it does now though). I do find it a little slower than what hotmal used to be - but hardly anything (maybe an extra second in loading the page).
