Newsgroups have been a great source of information for developers and as the communities are evolving, Microsoft Newsgroups are being migrated to Forums. It seems communities are preferring forums vs. newsgroups and Microsoft is aligning on this trend. This move will also unify the customer experience, centralize content, make it easier for active contributors to retain their influence, mitigate redundancies and make the content easier to find by customers and search engines through improved indexing.  Additionally, forums offer a better user and spam management platform that will improve customer satisfaction by encouraging a healthy discussion in a clean community space

If you are a user of WinCE Newsgroups, you will shortly find 3 new forums (links coming soon):
