No, I choose GMail because I liked the idea behind it. I was not
forced in any way. I actually have three GMail accounts: One for
mailing lists, one for friends and stuff and one for writing more
serious stuff, like writing to companies and things like that. The
last one might feel a bit unnecessary, but the user name of the second
one is kind of slang, so I figured that I should have another one that
feels more serious. But all that is another story, on the other hand.

Well, I like the idea of not needing another application running, and
since my web browser is running 100 % of the time anyway, I could as
well manage my email there by the web interface, which works fine
enough for me. It's not like I'm writing Email 90 % of my time online…

Kind regards
