Usenet group for Win 7

    I am about to make the jump to Win 7 and cannot find a usenet group
    called microsoft.public.windows7.general or a similar one to this XP
    usenet among the MS or Google groups.

    I presume there is one by now so can someone please help with the
    address

    Note I did find http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/default.aspx#tab=2
    but that is a typical modern MS site and assumes that everyone has
    broadband so it takes a week to open. I live in Papua New Guinea
    where on a good day TelikomPNG will provide an 11kb connection (and we
    don't get many good days).

    (note: ASSUME is an abbreviation of makes an ASS out of U and
    ME) :)>

    Thanks

    There is no official MS Usenet Windows 7 newsgroup. There is this:

    alt.windows7.general

    I would strongly advise using the MS Answers Forums instead. They cover
    XP, Vista and Win7

    Thanks Bruce for both links

    The Microsoft Answers Forum opened in just 17 seconds so it would
    appear that this will be a usable link

    Regards
