KB articles are moving

As noted here, we are going to be moving our KB articles off of support.microsoft.com and instead putting them on MSDN and TechNet so that developers and IT Professionals are able to find the information easier.

Here are some of the changes you can expect to see:

  • All http://support.microsoft.com Web sites that provide support for IT Professionals and Developers will now be directed to MSDN or TechNet.
  • The initial implementation begins on February 17, 2009 with the pilot launch of 20 support articles (KBs) in English and Japanese. When the team is satisfied that major search engines are picking up these changes in search results (which should be no later than February 28, 2009), we will than add more than 55,000 articles in Chinese-Traditional, Chinese-Simplified, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese-Brazil, Russian and Spanish.
  • Security/hotfix articles will not move to MSDN and TechNet immediately, although all IT Professional and Developer content will eventually move to MSDN or TechNet.

Hopefully this will help make some of this information easier to discover.

    Very BAD decision to move KB… A lot of people have links, even more got used to look info on http://support.microsoft.com/
