Windows Live Mail Preview has been launched in the Netherlands the 9. November 2006.

You can now upgrade your Hotmail adress to an Windows Live Mail adress if you live in the netherlands. But you can also create a new account with @live.nl if you want a shorter mail adress.

Why the Netherlands?

Well, the Netherlands is a prime location for the preview because of the local popularity of Hotmail, the very product that Windows Live Mail is a successor to. In fact, one in three people in the Netherlands has a Hotmail account! We will be using this experience to test some new scenarios, like those surrounding Windows Live IDs , as well as to go deeper into customer feedback. We will then incorporate and make improvements based on this feedback before launching in additional markets in the coming months.

What does this mean for the Netherlands?

If you live in the Netherlands, you can now:

  • Convert your existing Hotmail ID from the Hotmail experience to the Windows Live Mail experience
  • Your e-mail address will stay the same, but you will start using Windows Live Mail.
  • Your existing mail and contacts will follow you.
  • Create a new Windows Live ID (@live.nl) to use with Windows Live Mail
  • These @live.nl accounts are new accounts, separate from your existing Hotmail account. This means that mail and contacts in your existing Hotmail address will not follow you at this time.

However, we’re working hard to support the migration of your existing Hotmail account to an @live.nl account. That’s coming soon!

Personally I can only say: Microsoft, you are running behind! GMail has alot more space, and their interface is available for everyone!

Vista01Hey there peeps, I have recieved a licence key for Windows Vista with Windows Ultimate Extras.

I have been running it now for 12 hours, and have to say, it doesn’t crash more than Windows XP.

I installed it without any problems on my Test PC (P3 700MHz, GF4 MX, 512MB Ram) and encountered no problems. I have tried to do the same thing on VMWare Server, but that didn’t work, which is really a pity.

Then I was at the point of the activation. This didn’t work at all. After searching a few forums, I have found this as a solution. So anyone of you who has problems activating Vista follow these steps here.

After that all worked fine. I have some problems with Nvidia Drivers and 3D Acceleration, but that is only a minor problem. I have posted here some images which you’ll like.

My favourite new features is the RSS Feed Reader in Internet Explorer 7. You can see how it looks like on the screenshots. But there is again or still the problem of Internet Explorer and CSS. It just doesn’t seem to work like CSS and Firefox does.

I hope you’ll enjoy the screenshots, and feel free to ask for more. Continue reading Experiencing Windows Vista
