Microsoft has taken off the wraps for its new MSN site and is offering a preview. Microsoft is also offering free Hotmail email with 5 GB of storage plus some additional features that Microsoft has stated users wanted. For instance, the new site appears to be less cluttered than the older MSN site is. Users are allowed to customize the site to meet their specific wants and needs.

I signed up for the freebie Hotmail account, which provided me with a email address. Though 5 GB of space limits what a user can do, for the casual user it is sufficient. After viewing the site and what it offers, it has a long way to go in order to compete with what Google offers for iGoogle users. IMHO.

But take a look at the new site and see what you think. Share your thoughts with us.
