Count me in.. oh wait nevermind. But I love Neowin.. no really I do. I found Firefox here.. and that's just one of the many things I love online that come from here (meaning I found here or a member here told me about or helped me get into). Thanks Neowin! Many more to ya!

I actually forgot how I stumbled on to Neowin, but I do remember it was way back in 2003. Was a lurker for almost a year, before finally joining in 2004. I really enjoy reading the forum topics and posts, and have learnt a lot over the years! What I like most is the diversity of content! For example, I have discovered a lot of music and movies through Neowin!

Neowin is one of the few sites that have earned a permanent tab in my browser! :)

Well, I've been here for nearly six years now, and probably lurking for six-and-a-half thanks to Unimatrix Xero, who told me about this site. I originally signed up to get tech support, and then (once I matured a bit :p ) I eventually started contributing myself.

Nowadays, I'm mostly here for the gaming, music, sports, and jokes sections. :) Oh, and the Neobahn too. :p

I don't even remember exactly how I first discovered Neowin. I think it might've been when I was needing some help solving a technical problem and posted on the forums, or possibly when I was looking for information on Windows Vista and I decided to stick around. Either way, I come here every day now looking for the latest news on technology in general and I still post to the forums occasionally. I don't mind the ads so much, but I would mind a Tier 2 subscription for a year :)

Hm, I wonder - am I the only one who has Neowin open in a browser tab at all times?

I have it open from the second I get to work on a Monday to last thing on a Friday :D

Its been so long... I think I found neowin.net searching for information about some version of Windows or something waay back. Turned out it was a pretty good community of people who were knowledgeable on the subject which has of course since diversified a lot. Oddly, I don't go here so much for Windows news anymore but there is plenty of other stuff I read here so... ya, glad to be a part.

Wow this year has gone fast, It only seems like 5 minutes since Neowins 10th Birthday! I've been here for about 4.5 years now although some of that as a lurker.

found Neowin back in school around 2007. It would have normally been blocked on the school computers but when I took my own laptop into School and hooked it up I got fully uncensored internet and found this!

I remember browsing this site all the time looking for more information about the Whistler beta :)

Oh and I also remember eagerly waiting for Binary to release his Watercolor theme for WinXP. Best theme for XP ever.... I used it for at least 3-4 years, it's too bad MS scrapped it for Luna...
