Today we are launching a new blog called Extreme Windows. As you know (or don’t know) The Windows Blog is a network or family of blogs that together tell the company’s Windows story across different audiences spanning Windows, Windows Live, Internet Explorer and Windows Phone. Each individual blog has a distinct purpose and caters to a specific audience. For example the Windows Experience Blog focuses on the consumer audience – or the average PC user. Our goal for this blog, will cater to more advanced PC users – “power users” or what we call “enthusiasts”.
What exactly is an enthusiast you might ask? For Extreme Windows – we are defining enthusiast as someone with the following characteristics:
Essentially, an enthusiast is someone who does advanced or “extreme” things with their PCs and Windows – hence the name for this blog being Extreme Windows. By extreme we don’t necessarily mean taking a PC and trying to get it to utilize geothermal energy instead of the conventional power supply. Or do we? But seriously - you can expect to see blog posts on topics ranging from upgrading a PC’s graphics card or memory to getting the most out of Windows Media Center as a DVR to geeked out Windows tips and tricks. We’ll also be talking about really cool hardware and software products from our partners that can enable some impressive scenarios (at least we think they are super cool). The idea is that this blog will be an outlet for us to talk to the technology geeks who love doing crazy things with Windows and their PC. And posts won’t just come from me either. You can expect a variety of folks to take part in blogging here including my friends from the Windows PC Ecosystem Team who will introduce “extreme” scenarios available from the hardware\software ecosystem. We’ll also be showcasing community members and MVPs who are doing interesting things with their PCs and Windows as well.
So welcome to Extreme Windows and look for us to kick things off shortly!
Will be looking forward to the new Extreme Windows blog - I am an MVP and I write about windows tips & tricks on my blog, I would love to contribute if the contribution is allowed. :)
I'm looking forward to reading this new blog. I am a Windows Live MVP and try and help others to get to grips with Windows Live via my blog now on Wordpress unfortunately. Good idea!
Not an MVP here but looking forward to the content!
Definitely looking foward to this as well!
This sounds nice. I would love to contribute here. Previously i have authored an ebook on Windows 7 : tips & tricks with over 75,000 downloads till date. http://bit.ly/6ePtXS . I am a Microsoft MVP & regularly contribute at forums & blogs about Windows.
Would nn example be networking a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit machine with Windows 98? I consider that extreme :)
Hats off . . A great News . It Will mark a New Era . ..just like Windows Era .net my Tech Website Featuring The Revolution in Windows Era :)
Very nice. This segment has needed a forum.
An MVP here for windows desktop experience,would love to share my knowledge about the same
sounds good to me, I look forward to it. I enjoy The Green Button as I have been a media center and home server enthusiast for a few years now.
Nice to see blogs like this one. Keep up the good job :)
Question! When will you guys make Windows 7 not suck and put back all the awesome stuff from XP that was actually useful and remove all the junk like SuperFetch? I can't change my neighbor's My Documents folder to the D:\ any more and 7 refuses to save to any drive except for C:\. The classic start menu is gone and now that's this massive bloated corpse that appeared in Windows ME and it won't go away! SuperFetch massively slows down computers and somehow re-enables itself after being manually disabled. Windows Explorer has been totally borked and the GUI can't be customized like in XP. It's just a total nightmare and anyone who disagrees clearly isn't a power user who does the amount of production I do.
Really looking forward to receiving some excellent content from this blog. I'm hoping to be an MVP one of these days (maybe my 35+ years in computing will get me there some day!), and I hope this will be a good resource for all.
WOW! Great news and sounds very amusing to me. Thanks and keep up good work!
Congrats Brandon and the Windows Team Blog. I think its a great initiative and I'm sure we can expect to see some cool content being generated here!
Extreme Windows, sounds good too! :)
Anand Khanse, MVP.
I have been looking for a blog like this for 15 years. The rest of them show newbies and intermediates how to do things. How are you supposed to advance if no advanced information is available? Thank you!
