Microsoft introduces 'talking about Windows' site

Microsoft yesterday revealed yet another community based site based on the company's popular operating system, Windows.

In the past the software giant has introduced Channel9, On10, The Hive and Windows Team Blog all with the intention of creating a buzzing community discussing Windows. Microsoft's latest venture sees Mark Russinovich, Technical Fellow, Jon Devaan, Sr VP Windows Operating System and Rich Coulter, SCCM Administrator for Pella talking about Windows.

The site features videos and discussions from the Microsoft employees focusing on how they influence versions of Windows and the work involved.

It remains to be seen if this latest community site will be a big hit or simply fade away like UltimatePC.com and The Hive.

Mark is a real pro and also very consumer friendly with his help, work, experiments and tools.

Just listen at a video from him where he talks about Windows internals... this guy is skilled and neat... Not the common developer who hides in the basement *g*

Will this be a way for normal users to get more feedback across to the developers?

I do like the fact that Microsoft have been very transparent with all the development surrounding Winodws 7, hopefully it will continue this trend.

I'm also only gonna bother with it if I can give feedback and suggestions, not just traffic to pump in advertising revenues for M$.

There are blogs that Microsoft teams or employees keep up with, and they often do respond to people's comments.

If you are trying your best to avoid Microsoft blogs and sites, just to not let MS get any money from advertising, then you're missing out.
