Reviews of MSN Spaces

Interesting review of MSN Spaces at Blogger Herald:

Rank: .5/10

"Whilst some are saying that Microsoft will help grow the market, which is possible, this service will do little to provide the current and future bloggers with anything other mass produced, standardised rubbish..."

And from Joe Blade:

"So, MSN Spaces. They're not ugly -- not Netscape ugly -- but they all look basically the same. They offer no subtlety, no grace, and very little in the way of customisation -- just near-identical blogs with near-identical feature sets, stamped out on a production line. I've seen several reviews criticising this, but I don't see it as a problem. Like Livejournal before it, I see MSN Spaces offering a valuable function -- hoovering up a significant proportion of crap from the web, and sticking it all in an easily-avoidable area."
