    What happened?

    My favourite map search site (www.maps.live.com) (UK) has been replaced now by your newly acquired Multimap portal.

    How can anyone replace something so good with something this bad?

    I have used Live Maps in the UK for the past year and half, fully aware of the existense of Multimap.

    For the first time in 2years I’ve been forced to use Google Maps again. I have to now start removing links and shortcuts to Live Maps from my PC’s.
