I started following Neowin while Windows XP was still in development and remember how crazy the site went after 9/11. It's amazing to think how much time I've spent here.

Google didnt bother for overseas till after 2000. Great it existed before, but not to most of the world.

And as always... Google knows all.

I was on a Linux forum and there was a discussion regarding Linux fanboys (of which there are numerous examples) and how they make Linux a toxic community to be a part of. People seemed to believe it's only Linux and OSX that have fanboys and that Windows doesn't, so to provide a counterpoint someone provided a link to a news article posted on Neowin which was absolutely dripping with Windows fanboyism and honestly, some slander against Linux (I think it was that "Linux is dead on the desktop" article from a few years back, can't quite remember).

Same here. I registered in 2012 but in 2001 I found Neowin by looking for XP themes and Whistler news
