Microsoft Acquires Winternals Software

This is great news. I can't think of how many times I've used tools from the Sysinternals site to help figure out what was going on in Windows.

Microsoft Corp. today announced the acquisition of Winternals Software LP, a privately held company based in Austin, Texas, that provides Windows®-based enterprises with systems recovery and data protection solutions in addition to offering a freeware tools Web site called Sysinternals. The addition of Winternals is a significant advance in Microsoft’s promise to lower customers’ total cost of ownership of the Microsoft® Windows platform. Customers will be able to continue building on Sysinternals’ advanced utilities, technical information and source code for utilities related to Windows. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

I'm not sure which is bigger news - Microsoft gaining Sysinternals' utilities, or Mark Russinovich. Either way, I'm glad we have them both.
