Microsoft Windows: RSS Feeds for Help, Support and News

   Posted May 30, 2005 by David Kirk in Windows

Microsoft now makes receiving support-related information easy. Simply subscribe to the associated RSS feed.


If you are an administrator or Microsoft follower, did you know you can subscribe to updates for every Microsoft product through RSS feeds?
As a network administrator, I subscribe to several of these so that I will know when the latest update or patch has been released.

Here is where to grab the links:
