Hi, what is correct?

Me gusta la Internet.
Me gusta el Internet.
Me gusta Internet.

Different people are saying different things to me.

Many thanks.

Yo creo que me gusta internet está bien dicho. O no decimos me gusta comer, me gusta bailar, sin necesidad de poner artículo.

@Alexls: Los infinitivos no carecen del artículo cuando sirven de sujetos, pero los sustantivos, sí.
Cuando sirve de complemento directo o de preposición, no hay necesidad de ponerle el artículo. 'Buscar en Internet' está bien dicho, p. ej.

Estoy de acuerdo con Rusty.

@Alexls: No es el mismo caso. Internet es un sustantivo, no un verbo. No decimos "me gusta comida" ni "me gusta baile", sino "me gusta la comida" y "me gusta el baile".

Gracias por la clarificación.

It's funny that once something makes sense, something else pops up.

No ha de faltar mucho para incorporar el neologismo al DRAE.
