Welcome to the New WindowsDevCenter

by Preston Gralla

You're seeing a new look on WindowsDevCenter today, and the changes go beyond the merely cosmetic. We've redesigned and refocused the site to expand our Windows coverage, and to give greater emphasis to our lineup of bloggers.

WindowsDevCenter's sister site, OnDotNet, has been combined with WindowsDevCenter. So in addition to the coverage you've come to expect about Windows system administration, IT, and tips for power users, you'll also find in-depth coverage of .NET, Windows development, and associated technologies. Among the writers you'll be seeing is Jesse Liberty, best-selling author of several books, including Programming Visual Basic 2005, and Visual C# 2005: A Developer's Notebook. This means that OnDotNet fans will continue to get the same coverage they have in the past, but on the WindowsDevCenter site.

We've expanded WindowsDevCenter coverage in part to take into account the upcoming Vista launch late next year. You'll be able to find all Vista coverage in one place now, whether you're a developer, system administrator, or power user.

We've also grown our roll of expert Windows bloggers, and wanted to give them more prominence as well. I'll of course continue blogging, and I'm joined by Jesse Liberty, O'Reilly author and IT expert Mitch Tulloch, and plenty of new bloggers. Look for plenty of new voices, and check back every day.

I hope you like what we've done with the site. If you do, and even if you don't, let me know by talking back to me, below.
