If you thought Micro$oft just sucked, then you are wrong. It sucks more and to the core.
Recently, Micro$oft adopted one of the cheapest tactics to drive hotmail users away GNU/Linux.
Hotmail users can only read their mails from a Linux Browser. They cannot compose mails nor reply to emails recieved when working on a Linux System.
Do you believe this? The best part of the whole story is, how many GNU/Linux users even care to use Hotmail? 😛
OK, I just used firefox in Window$ to login to the hotmail account. I had two weird experiences.
Just as I logged in through my favorite browser Firefox, (Firefox 3.0.4, the lastest version till date) I was greeted by a message instructing me to upgrade my browser. I don’t understand how much more advanced a browser has to be, to display a simple hotmail inbox. God save Micro$oft.
Bingo! I had a new mail saying Bill Gates would come to Bangalore. The mail was sent by the M$ student partner to all my classmates, 50 of them. I thought of replying to all with a Thank you message and clicked on the Reply to all button.
Guess what happened! I got an error message:
Please remove some of your recipients. You can send your message to 10 people at a time.
A M$ student partner can send en email to 50 recepients at a time while I can reply to only 10 people at a time? What kind of a f#$king logic is this? Why are not all people treated equally?
I request sincerely from the bottom of my heart, Please do not use Hotmail.
