Executives are promising the service’s 230 million users that they will be able to keep their familiar log-ins under the Windows Live banner.
Yes thats right! Hotmail will dissappear but your email address will stay under the new Windows Live service to be launched some time soon. Don’t panic if you have a hotmail or msn email address as it will stay and work. Windows live is in beta testing and is part of Microsoft’s push to gain more revenue from live services as opposed to software licencing.
