Microsoft Responds to the Evolution of Communities

The Microsoft Newsgroups are going away to be replaced by web based forums. This change has been in the works for several years. I’m sure that plenty of people will get all worked up about. I won’t. My preference is to follow newsgroups and forums via RSS and that’s hard to do for newsgroups. It’s only because of Google that it’s possible.

Frankly, I’ll be happy to have fewer, more concentrated places to provide support to GP users. The fragmentation meant that folks often posted in more than one place making it tough to really provide complete answers.
