    MS is never set up a newsgroup fro Win7 as it is in the process of getting
    out of Usenet altogether. Forums is what they are doing now.

    Windows 7 Forums
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/windows7

    There is an unsanctioned newsgroup. alt.windows7.general, is available on
    many non-MS servers.

    Not here. Then again, soon enough you won't find any newsgroups here as
    the MS server will be gone by Oct. 1st.

    Try eternal-september.org or aioe.org for alt.windows7.general

    That's not a newsgroup, they asked where the newsgroup was, not a
    message board. Can't you understand the difference?

    No, I just can't deal with people that can't comprehend what they read,
    therefore giving wrong answers.

    Simple solution------don't deal with them, just ignore their posts.
