Win2K8 Server Newsgroup(s)

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Administrator/jhafele, Dec 26, 2007.

  1. Is anyone aware of the presence of a Windows Server 2008 newsgroup ? I am
    familiar with the TechNet forum but have been searching in vain for a
    newsgroup. Anything out there ? Info would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks - and - happy
    holidays to all. ................ John.

  2. Use the server newsgroups already in place. MS is not making new public
    newsgroups.

  3. As Colin says, it's very unlikley that there will be new newsgroups, so
    we'll just make do with the ones we already have. MS is under the delusion
    that they can just do forums and everyone will be happy. But as long as
    there are newsgroups, people like Colin, and Carlos and Tony and John and
    many, many others will be here, offering what little we know, to help
    others. It's called a community, and it existed before MS and will continue
    long after they forget what it is or how to be part of it.

    If MS is not making any new newsgrousp, why do they bother running the
    existing ones? It seems to me they should crap of get off of the pot.
    Support them whole heartedly, including making new groups, or pull the plug
    and shut them all down.

  7. Go tell MS. Charlie and several others of the group have talked with them
    about it for the last three years.

  8. Yes, it's not like we haven't been saying this!

    And now our biggest proponent internally is leaving. <sigh>
