Forums vs. Newsgroups RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I have a technical question or issue, should I search or post in one of the Microsoft forums or in one of the newsgroups? From the standpoint of a infrequent user, both seem to offer the same general functionality.

    Thanks in advance.

    You always should find it first in Forums because forums are monitored by microsoft professionals. If you didn't find any suitable forum regrding your questions then you can try newsgroups.

  • Just to clarify, are you saying the Microsoft professions do not monitor the Microsoft public newsgroups like microsoft.public.biztalk.general but they do monitor the BizTalk forums?
