I remember back in the day all the crap you got, like CD's after CD's, the only the good thing about aol was the metal tins the CDS came in. Other then that AOL has always sucked!

Yes, AOL is nothing but junk.
There was a day when they offered a useful service: Making the Internet easy for noobs. Now, the Internet is easy and transitional services are no longer neccessary. So AOL just needs to go away.

I agree this AOL thing now is just pure nonsense. I certainly don't need the AOL Desktop, I just downloaded it by the way, to see how it is, and for nostalgia. I rather that AOL just focuses on staying relevant to the new world. Sure they updated their software to work on Windows 8, but that's not enough. We need new ideas from AOL. Plus for the record, this software is complete and utter crap. I much rather use Explorer 6. Typing this on AOL Desktop 9.7, it's fine, It's based on IE, so I see. However, I couldn't upload this photo attached. So.. yeah. Uninstalling this immediately, lool.

AOL's motto should be "What happens in 1995 MUST stay in 1995", unfortunately their browser seems to have escaped 1995 and plagues people, and most believe they must still pay for it when you can get the same thing for free, i still use aol as my primary email, but their interface is junk, and there is not even a corporate/clean cut theme, and they're constantly posting "news" about celebrities and garbage that no one should care about.

Well the AOL disc cases were very useful for using whenever you needed a case for some CD or DVD. The oldest case I still have is one from 2000 where they said they were giving 1000 hours and it's being used for a Wheel of Fortune PS1 game. I could use some more disc cases lol

WE had AOL here in the UK!!!!!! It was the first internet service we used. They had good and bad points. I loved their router as it did do a very good job. However the browser looked like something out of the 1950's and was very slow and was very large. I have now had my aol email address for several years and still continue to use it. I still love gmail but as all of my contacts were already on AOL i decided to just leave them on their.
