Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: New Microsoft Forums!
In case you haven't noticed, when a Vista user clicks on "Help and
Support" and looks under the topic "Ask Someone", the second sub-topic
"Get help from experts and other users online at Microsoft Answers".
Clicking on "Microsoft Answers" takes the user to the new Windows Vista
Forums. Therefore, Microsoft is directing users seeking assistance to
its new forums and not any "newsgroup". Sure, newsgroups are a useful
venue, but the forums seem to have a heck of a lot more Microsoft System
Engineers and MS-MVP presence than newsgroups do now.
