  • Microsoft is working on providing a bridge to NNTP for the forum software. There are tehnical considerations that are keeping them from moving the bridge into production (some of the instability we've seen in the past was apparently related to testing early versions of that bridge).

    There is no timeframe for when such a bridge might be made available.

  • As Andrew says, No.

    However, Microsoft Connect, (who are responsible for this sites' operation,) have said in the past, that they might well migrate to a Newsgroup.

    Any news (ha!) on this? There seems to be a German group (microsoft.public.de.windows.homeserver) on msnews.microsoft.com - but not an English one.
