Microsoft acquires SysInternals

I'm very pleased to announce that Microsoft has acquired Winternals Software and Sysinternals. Bryce Cogswell and I founded both Winternals and Sysinternals (originally NTInternals) back in 1996 with the goal of developing advanced technologies for Windows. We've had an incredible amount of fun over the last ten years working on a wide range of diverse products such as Winternals Administrator's Pak, Protection Manager, Defrag Manager, and Recovery Manager, and the dozens of Sysinternals tools, including Filemon, Regmon and Process Explorer, that millions of people use every day for systems troubleshooting and management.

I suggest you start downloading their tools while you can. They are absolutely invaluable, and MS may not like all of them.

One thing that drives me nuts is a Windows machine without Process Explorer installed. I just hate when people ask me again and again to help them with their Windows issues and they still don't have PE running even if I told them to do so many times before.

Well, SysInternals is now gone. Great.

Rocky: SysInternals is there now. It probably got a huge traffic spike from this announcement.
