Welcome to WindowsDevCenter.com

by Preston Gralla

Welcome to WindowsDevCenter.com, O'Reilly's new site for Windows developers, power users, system administrators, and IT folks. It's here to help you get the most out of today's versions of Windows, as well as prepare for the future - and so you'll get in-depth articles about Windows technologies including .NET, VBScript, SQL, system administration, wireless, and more. In addition to articles for developers and system administrators, we'll also feature plenty of tips, tricks, and reviews for all Windows users. Our daily news section will keep you up to date with the latest stories in the Windows world. And the site gives you a forum to interact with like-minded others.

We felt this was the ideal time to launch WindowsDevCenter: Windows XP will be getting its biggest overhaul yet with the release of SP-2 in the middle of this year, and Longhorn will dramatically transform the entire Windows architecture and interface.

I'm a long-time Windows-watcher, author of Windows XP Hacks among many other books, and have been kicking the tires of Windows technologies for longer than I care to mention. I'm the editor in charge of the site, and will be weblogging here regularly, so let me know what you think of the site, what you'd like to see here, and what you wouldn't like to see here. And send along your tip and tricks as well.

One last note: We're also launching a weekly newsletter to help keep you up to date with everything going on at the site. It's free, so to keep informed, click here.

What would you like to see us cover in WindowsDevCenter.com - and what do you think of what we've already done? Let me know.
