The MSCOM Community Team has launched a spiffy new way for the developer community to find answers to technical questions and communicate about MS development technologies. http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/

Pretty neat stuff. The ability to register for notifications when a question you've asked has received an answer is really useful. There's also integration with Whidbey Beta2 IDE so you can include the forums in searches from the IDE's help system.

A couple of blogs explaining the new system:

I used to work on the dev team that put this together, and I know they've put a lot of effort into making this happen. I think the results are a terrific thing for the developer community.
