    windowsxp.nu is now Microsoft Netherlands

    Well, I guess we knew it was coming.....

    Just surfed out to www.windowsxp.nu and it redirects you to http://www.microsoft.com/netherlands/default.asp.

    Hopefully the content will surface under a new site. If it has been relocated, could someone post the url?

    Cheers,

    maybe he sold them the domain name the site is stll up at its original location:

    http://www.bink.nu

    and looking deeper i find:

    Monday I transferred the domain WindowsXP.nu to Microsoft after reaching an agreement with Microsoft last Friday.
    I want to thank everyone for the enormous support on this issue, though some people thought MS claimed my site which was not the case, it was only the domainname. Microsoft wants me to continue and will support me in doing so. Thanks again but let's get on with it. Case closed.

    Yup.. I asked Steven Bink (the sites (former) owner) on MSN,

    He was short and told me that this was the best way out, and the site had served the purpous (before and around the release of WindowsXP) it had..

    I think more people's interest about WindowsXP has kinda died out after it's release..
