  • Microsoft buys Winternals

    I recently read that Microsoft is buying Winternals. I wonder what will happen to their amazing utilities. Will Microsoft can them and discontinue the products or make them better? Here is the story. What do you think?

    The following is taken from Businessweek.com
    Microsoft buys data protection company

    JUL. 18 12:33 P.M. ET Microsoft Corp., the world's largest software maker, said Tuesday it agreed to acquire Winternals Software LP, an Austin, Texas-based maker of data protection and systems recovery software.

    Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Winternals co-founder Mark Russinovich will join Microsoft as a technical fellow in the platforms and services division, while co-founder Bryce Cogswell will join Microsoft's Windows component platform team as a software architect.

    I'm actually rather worried that they're going to screw up the tools. I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

          The Microsoft subsidiary sign is already on the site. Funny thing too, this link no longer works. http://winternals.com/products/repai...02.asp?pid=erd . Click on the Emergency Downloads button (right side menu) and see what happens.
