    Maybe this means we'll get a better task manager? Smiley

    Why does everyone view this as the sky is falling.  I used the SysInternals programs and they worked very well.  I think this will help MS out, get someone who has a fresh look at the kernel and what is going on.  Someone who is outside of MS and has spent time looking in.

    Now go get him on video Smiley

    Maybe I'm wrong, but wasn't the SysInternals/WinInternals ex-Softies anyways?

    I heard that they didn't want to join MS because they feared of being assimilated. Guess that the situation is different Smiley

    am i missing something or is all of their freeware (process explorer, tcpview, filemon, regmon) gone from their servers?

    if this is the case (the freeware has officially been killed), this is a really, really crappy move on microsoft's part.  there's no mention of it in their faq...

    Fear not, it's still available on BitTorrent with 25 seeders.

    You're missing something. A decent net connection. Just pulling down process explorer as a test and it's fine.

    acutally, i was poking around the winternals site and freaking out like webbo's picture depitcs.  didn't realize until a minute ago that the sysinternals site is completely separate and still completely active/intact.  though quite slow as of this writing.  (probably everyone spazzing and downloading all their utilities?  ...  this news made digg as well.)

    As long as they ship me my t-shirt for trying out Recovery Manager I could care less who buys what.

    I think these will be added to their collection of WGA downloads if they're not making their way to build-in into Vista or later version of Windows. Smiley

    I doubt they'll take it... but make sure you get it burned in your CD collections. Wink

    Good thing I kept most of the Sysinternals Freeware on a disk.
