Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

MSN, Microsoft's erstwhile flagship Internet service, goes from worse to damn near unusable, reports Pete Sherriff. Regular contributors to The Register, tempted no doubt by MSN's free accounts for journalists offer, are finding it increasingly impossible to file anything other than their nails as they wait in vain for MSN to send or receive mails. Sometimes you can send but not receive. Sometimes you can receive but not send. Sometimes you need a stiff drink. Could this possibly be a damnably clever marketing move to make everyone so cheesed off with MSN that they simply won't care when and if Microsoft pulls the plug? Answers, please on a postcard, because email to our MSN accounts sure as Hell won't get here. ® Peter Sherriff is a regular contributor to The Register
