    Do they really walk the walk, or just talk the talk? I'm not sure, since they have Scott there.

    I wonder why Microsoft feels the need to showcase this.

    I smell Marketing!

    Re: New Microsoft Site for Testers

    Well, I have been somewhat involved in this so I can say that this is another way for Microsoft to 'open its doors' so to speak, and share some of our internal testing processes and ideas with other testers around the world in a more open forum (as compared to our personal blogs which span a wide range of topics, but the blogger sets the topics).

    Microsoft is more like General Electric in that we have about 200 or so business units (BU) under the umbrella of Microsoft. Each BU has its strengths and weaknesses. There is no single "Microsoft Way" and I am sure that will come out in the forum. But, the goal is similar to the goal of this forum which is to provide a community for testers to ask questions, bounce ideas off other professionals in the discipline, and share information.

    Re: New Microsoft Site for Testers

    We'll see. Even though I am not a fan of MS, I decided to take a chance, and asked a question over there yesterday morning. At the time of this writing, I've gotten no help - and the question I asked would have been easy for someone working at MS to answer.

    I posted the same question here this morning. I'll report back to this forum with the results.

    Re: New Microsoft Site for Testers

    Two comments:

    #1: The blogs at that MS site are of some value. I already got some useful info out of I.M.Testy's blog. Their forum may not be mature yet (and may never mature) but the site is still a good resource even if the forum isn't as good as this one.

    #2: JakeBrake spends some portion of every day thinking about Britney and K-Fed.
