Microsoft released a preview version of Outlook.com six months ago with a modern user interface. It was indented to replace Hotmail.com. Today, when the email service has 60 million users, Microsoft has dropped the Preview tag and people everywhere can get started with Outlook.com.

 

The company has also launched a multi-million dollar ad campaign aimed at Gmail users, which is currently the most popular email service worldwide. It's good to note these ads aren't as aggressive towards Google as the recent Scroogled ads were.

 

Watch the new ads below and please comment what do you think about Outlook.com? Do you find it better than Gmail?

Monopoly is bad for consumers. If we don't use Outlook.com, it will still be beneficial to all the Gmail users as Google now has a competitor.

Agree with pcHuntqwerty, outlook is still in beta as long as the calender is not updated.

Outlook.com is awesome, but yes, where on earth is the calender and why is it stick stuck with the awful Windows Live Wave 5 UI?
