Windows 7: What Homepage should I use?

What Homepage should I use?

My days as an iGoogle user are numbered. What should I do? Are there third parties that make Homepages? What features should I look for?

Home pages are purely personal preference,
Personally I don't like allot of Flash player content so I use my.msn.com rather than msn.com also because I can remove existing content and replace it with news sources I prefer to read.

I just use my email page for my home page. It's always the first place I go to anyway.

Thank you for the information on sources of Homepage software.

Not going to use Windows Seven Forums as my homepage but it could become the homepage for my exploration of the Windows operating environment. When measuring the level of satisfaction from my use of personal computers at any moment I either love it or hate it. I think customizing repetitive tasks is the path to a love relationship. I wonder how I might use Windows Seven Forums as a Homepage within igHome to explorer different ways of using Windows applications?

I'm using igHome and I think it works great.... but I only have one weather widget. My others are Date & Time, CNN, NPR, Accuweather, CBC, USA Today, a calendar, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal. For me, it's a dropin replacement for iGoogle, and I had read numerous reviews that say it's the closest.
