    Congratulations, you've just published an entire article proving you have no clue how Hotmail's "10GB attachment limit" works or what it's about.

    I don't think you debunked anything, you just argued the one extreme side of it. The point is up to 10gb is just that a range. And that is bigger than up to and including 25mb. And yes uploading 10Gb might be silly for all the reasons you outlined, not including the people with latest Outlook and fast up/down broadband, but it can be done

    and site loaded just fine with Firefox too ;)

    Hotmail max file attachment size limit is 25 MB, anything higher is not really sent to the receiver, but uploaded to your SkyDrive. That makes some of his arguments worthless, as you're not bothering the receiver. Plus, it kinda seems just like a Hotmail bashing article. He's also suggesting online sharing services to upload it to so people can choose what they want to download instead of the whole 10GB, of course that would only work if you upload it in parts or multiple files, and if you do that, you could also send multiple smaller attachments. And he goes on about internet speed, just like that is Hotmails fault, and again you don't need to upload one big 10GB file, you can do it multiple files or pieces. Plus, it's just that you can sent big files, that no one will probably ever sent a 10GB file doesn't matter, the nice thing is that you can sent files a lot bigger than before, with a limit of 10GB, but no-one will probably ever get that high, so you can virtually send anything you like.
