Microsoft Looks to Build Up the Windows Community

'The Hive' is Microsoft's attempt to bring some of the community impetus it has generated with Channel 9, The Spoke and other developer-focused efforts to the consumer space.

Always on the lookout for ways to continue to build the buzz around Windows, Microsoft launched on Monday a beta release of a new community-outreach initiative, called "The Hive."

Microsoft officials denied the company is trying to build a Windows version of Slashdot. Unlike Slashdot and other Microsoft community-building projects — such as Channel 9 and The Spoke, — all of which target developers, The Hive is aimed at online leaders who specialize in consumer-oriented applications of Windows and other Microsoft technologies, such as digital photography, gaming, multimedia, home-finance and the like.
