Well does all of your schoolwork take up to 2gb? I do the samething as you and I don't need 2gb (I'm using Yahoo's regular 100mb and I still haven't used 6% of it).

Overselling Server Capacity and knowing full well with 20Meg Attachments nobody can use it efficiently for a Virtual Hard Drive, and hence never fill it.

They are raising it because they can, having seen nobody will use too much space for their miniature budget to be pushed 2Gigs to everybody is the same as 1Gig to everybody - especially considering its not even out of Beta because if it was even on 10, 20Megs each Google couldn't afford it in Production. This way it pumps up their image gets advertising revenue and attacks MSN - which is the main reason they pushed it up; because MSN Hotmail Plus and MSN Premium Services both offer 2Gigs of Space and that can be used as a Virtual Hard Drive if you use it with the MSN Explorer, which Drags and Drops with E-Mail from your Stored Messages, which you can get to from the PC and your MSN Inbox which is on the Server.

In the end; that extra $14 a year is more than worth it for the same storage, cleaner and nicer interface even on the Web Version no adverts, no bugs reading your e-mails no specific adverts sent to you no Oversell, no Beta, no Test and a vast collection of other services even with Hotmail Plus and not MSN Premium like the Calendar, Address Book, Messenger Intergration and ActiveX Photo Tools.
