Microsoft had their own servers hosting their own newsgroups but decided to give them up to concentrate on forums instead, like the Answers one and all the Tech forums.
The newsgroups didn't go away though as some other newsgroup companies hosted them, that is why Microsoft never had a Windows 7 newsgroup of their own that was started I believe on one of the Alt. groups.

That's my quick explanation of the situation but I expect someone could give you a better take on it.

Win 7 Family Pack
I installed a second copy of Windows Home Premium on my Netbook. I now get a message 'Invalid Copy'. My question is the 'UPGRADE' is not really an upgrade but instead I need a new key. Will a Family Pack overlay an allready installed win 7. I will not be upgrading from XP or Vista.
