Gamertag Question

So...I've been wanting to change my GamerTag for about 3 years now.

The tag I want has been taken this whole time...
I don't think the guy even plays online anymore.
I think he/she made the gamertag during the original XBox times.

Is there a way to find out if the person is still using Live.
...and if they aren't using it anymore/don't care, is there any way for me to get the GT?

Unfortunately once a Gamertag is issued, it's not reissued. The player could be using it for other Microsoft accounts, and not an Xbox.

I know a couple of years ago Major Nelson posted on his blog that they were going to resurrect old tags but there hasn't been much talk since that time.

I hope this helps.
