Haven't you read? IE General *is* a Vista NG.
As is WU and the other 5 "shared" NG pointed to by http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/com...s/default.mspx
At the very least we need default cross-posting to Vista General
from that Vista Help portal...
and my other suggestions for improvements to that portal's
menu implemented as well... ; )
Be grateful that most posters from there seem to understand
this and differentiate their posts (somewhat) with reasonably
direct references to their OS. I think it's unfortunate though
that so few Vista operators are likely to read them.
E.g. is this NG included in a search by that portal otherwise?
Hmm... surprisingly, Yes! http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/com...xp=&sloc=en-us
So it is at least useful to them for searching, if not browsing.
