I pretty much ditched Hotmail as soon as Gmail came out, and never looked back. The search feature is brilliant - no need to keep your inbox in order, as you can use Google's excellent search functionality to find all your old emails.
I even use it for storing important documentation or sending reminders to myself. And with such a large mailbox, there's no need to be precious about your usage. After 5 years using it, I've still only filled about 15% of my inbox.
