The new Hotmail was introduced to the public a couple of weeks ago. It was initially started with one single server cluster. Thus there are only a few million people using this updated service which is less than 1% of the total hotmail users.
The company’s spokesperson says that it will be introduced to a few more server clusters. This is because the company has to do some minor changes in the update following its introduction to a single server cluster.
Features of the new Hotmail update:
