We have received an urgent request to remove MSN8 and MSN5 code from Neowin, so in response we have removed the news post where the links to these programs were made available. Neowin did not host the code but understands linking to the code is as bad. We would like to request that Neowins members respect this decision even if MSN code is freeware Microsoft isn't ready to let the public have it yet. Email follows:
