Did the name hotmail turn you off? It's changing.
It did for me. No way was I going to have that associated with my name, and I did not sign up even when it might have been a good idea otherwise.
Not a big deal. Pick almost any name you want, some people will like it, some won't.
Well, it's going to be changed. Outlook.com is open. It isn't very old and good usernames are still available. One person said that hotmail accounts will have to be transferred over in some time. He signed up for outlook.com so he could get the same username.
I've just tried it out and like it. It was simple to import my gmail contacts. When I sent a couple of emails, the auto suggest worked as well as gmail's.
Gmail has a way of adding an image to an email so a person sees it with the text when they open it. I like doing that lately.
With outlook, it is even simpler. You can copy and paste it.
It has a simple, minimalistic interface. They got all of my preferences right this time.
MS has been doing some good things lately.

Re: Did the name hotmail turn you off?
I have been using Hotmail accounts for a long time and never had an issue with their name. Hotmail also allow you to create @live email addresses which are the ones I use. firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm not too fond of outlook.com. Doesn't sound like an email provider.
