Woof! This is awesome: Microsoft buys Windows utility software maker CNET News.com:
"In buying Winternals, Microsoft is getting the company's free tools, its
Sysinternals community Web site as well as several paid-for software products
for businesses. However, it appears Microsoft made the deal, in large part, to
hire the company's two co-founders.
'It's definitely about talent,' Platform and Services division architect
Jason Garms said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. 'Mark is one of the top
five or 10 people in the world when it comes to Windows internals.' "
I hope that the Sysinternals web site stays up and that we continue to offer the tools and their source. That toolset is one of the essentials for working on Windows machines.
