We have been in discussion with Robert Stein (Bob) of Activewin, for the past 3 weeks due to the recent server moves and increasing costs to run Neowin (now spread over 2 servers) we have decided to merger Neowin into Activewin, this means the community will not go homeless because it will be integrated into ActiveWin website where a select few of the Neowin staff will continue to post news. Heres a few facts about ActiveWin compared to Neowin:
- Activewin is hosted on Windows Servers while Neowin is on Linux
- Activewin is propped by both Microsoft and LockerGnome as a true enthusiasts site
- Activewin don't endorse or promote unprofessional-ism in news(relay)
- Activewin and Neowin both use win in the name
Its been a fun 3 and a half years, we certainly moved some mountains and annoyed alot of people in the process, so Paul Thurrott I guess you'll get the last laugh after all but you won't be able to claim you saw THIS coming....
Thanks everyone for your continued support to Neowin. ActiveWin will make a statement of their own shortly, they allowed us to post first as a mark of respect.
Update: Activewin have also posted their statement, you can read it here.
