Before anyone says that it works... there are 3 versions of Windows Live Hotmail right now (all at the same time) due to the slow roll-out of the very latest version of Windows Live Hotmail.
I have 2 hotmail accounts, one is on the very new (Oct 2008) version and one is on the older version.
The very new version does not work with Linux I believe but the older one still does.
There is even the Windows Live Hotmail classic which also works.
And so, it is the very latest one that does not work. Not all people or hotmail users are on the latest version yet. You will know what I mean when you reach the new version.
I opened an account with Gmail which works with any browser or OS.
But I still want to know why the new Windows Live Hotmail does not work with Linux.
