contrary to what other definers have said, hotmail was not started by microsoft. it was started by an individual who had an idea of making a free email service available through the web. microsoft acquired it years later (1999, maybe). originally running on unix servers, it was moved to a windows architecture, which is why hotmail had less reliable service in the first year or two that microsoft owned it.

Easy access free e-mail where you can pick your own 'starring' pathetic name such as "bustysetofdoubleD's" or "mrwellendowed". A majority of NORMAL PEOPLE use it because its easy, fast, efficient, and familiar. Any other than the reasons listed would be a fucking JOKE. Literally.

1."Oh heyyy....." "I've got hotmail so that means I'm hot...."

2."My hotmail was free AND EASY as hell to use." God I'm excited."
