If I liked this format I would use MSN not a MSN look alike!!!!
If I wanted to use a site like msn I would just use msn. You changed what made you different and NO I will not get used to it over time. Change is great if the change is for the better. This format is not as visually pleasing as the old one, it just looks like a mobile app that doesn't fill up the computer monitor. I just do not like it at all. My suggestion CHANGE IT BACK or you will loose users.
You lost me as a user. Back to MSN for my news!
Google is now my official homepage...And I am not happy about it Yahoo!
