Looking for a newsgroup for W7??

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and am looking for a newsgroup that gives tips and tricks for Windows 7. I have looked high and low but nothing. I am using Windows Live Mail, so possibly I am looking for an RSS Feed or Newsgroup that gives tips and tricks on this OS, heck even the latest news for Windows 7! PLEASE HELP

Try subscribing to this group using the Google Reader. That will display all
the new posts each day.

I read them daily and have learned lots of good information. Than if you
need help, go to the group to get the best advise available anywhere.

Hope this helps

Microsoft is unfortunately moving toward web forums and away from newgroups for support. At this time, Microsoft has no newgroup for Windows 7 and may never have one.

There are a series of Vista forums underneath microsoft.public.windows, but nothing I can find for Windows 7.

There is alt.windows7.general, but it has little traffic.

Microsoft has a series of forums (not newsgroups) at:

I have never really understood why a newsgroup would be better than a forum? It seems that what I have found on usenet is primary information that isn't wanted to be mainstream.

EDIT: However, I have to admit that I find the New Posts feature of this forum to be less than desirable. Instead of displaying posts in the order made, like on the boards, the sequence remains stationary and you still have to go back and forth through the pages.
