Windows Sysinternals Site Goes Live

The Sysinternals web site created in 1996 by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell to host their advanced system utilities and technical information was acquired by MS in July, 2006. MS has placed the new site under the TechNet group of sites. Should still be useful stuff, since MS has given Mark almost free reign to do whatever he wants to do... as long as he keeps coming up with cool stuff that they can sell.  ;)

Re: Windows Sysinternals Site Goes Live

I'm happy for the Sysinternals crew. They had a great opportunity and went with it, but sadly no more source code.

From the licensing FAQ:

Q: Can I license or re-use any Sysinternals source code?
A: No. We will no longer offer the Sysinternals source code for download
or license.
Q: Will Microsoft migrate and host all the Sysinternals tools?
A: No. A small number of tools were identified for removal before the
acquisition. We worked very closely with Mark Russinovich to determine
which tools to migrate. That said, a majority of the tools will be
migrated which include the latest and most popular tools. In addition,
we will be open to resurrecting old tools based on community requests.
