Has Bill Gates successfully killed hotmail.com?

There is good news and bad news. The good news is churumuri has received over 1,400 emails from around the world in the last five days, not counting the comments directly posted by readers.

The bad news is three, yes exactly three, of those 1,400-odd emails has a hotmail.com address.

Which leads us to wonder: whatever happened to the original Indian software success story? And, more importantly, was Sabeer Bhatia just a lucky baddi maga?

Maybe it is Bill Gates, maybe it is the result of a resurgent yahoo and google, maybe it’s just one of those things. But to see so many Indians leaving what one of their own created is sobering.

Will the last three leaving hotmail please turn off the systems?
