|GotDotNet Phase-out Announcement|
||Microsoft announces changes to the GotDotNet phase-out schedule.
Overall phase-out will be completed in summer 2007.
Based on your feedback, we’ve made some adjustments to our schedule:
CodeGallery phase-out – Rescheduled to July 2007 (original phase-out date was April 24, 2007)
This gives CodeGallery owners more time to migrate. We suggest CodePlex as an excellent alternative. Please contact CodePlex support with any questions you may have.
User Samples phase-out – Schedule update in Fall ‘07
We will not phase-out User Samples until we can provide customers with greater alternative. We will update you with further schedule information in Fall, 2007.
Workspaces phase-out – Completed on June 19, 2007.
We suggest CodePlex as an excellent alternative. Please contact the CodePlex support staff with any questions you may have.
||We appreciate the input you’ve given us regarding the GotDotNet phase-out. We will keep you posted as we move forward.
We are phasing out GotDotNet for the following reasons:
Microsoft wants to reinvest the resources currently used for GotDotNet in new and better community features for our customers
Traffic and usage of GotDotNet features has significantly decreased over the last six months
Microsoft wants to eliminate redundant functionality between GotDotNet and other community resources provided by Microsoft
