Gmail was in beta testing for the longest time but now users of Hotmail are having to hunt for compatible browsers to do their e-mailing. M$ has even suggested users should try Google-Chrome Browser. The problems seem quite deep as they have been going on for days. This is not good for a company “all-in” to the web… Fortunately there are lots of alternatives if users decide to switch. It is a bit surprising that M$ hasn’t caught on to the utility of standards by now. I left Hotmail many years ago because of spam. Perhaps this year the departures will be due to lack of service.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. I do not care whether my solution is the same as yours. I like to think for myself.
My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
