Good Morning!

In short, I'm after a Windows equivalent of here. I administer a (nearly) Windows-only network, and I've been coming up against problems increasingly frequently recently.

I'd like good, technical and fairly quick responses to questions about Windows 9x+ (through to Win7/Server08), applications, Dos, batch files, hardware compatability etc. It's mostly business and workplace computing (it's entirely for stuff I do at work). I've no real interest in gaming, case modding or the like. Somewhere sympathetic to my coming-from-linux approach would be nice, but probably asking a touch too much

I'm not interested in OS wars, and I'd be quite happy with a mailing list.[0]

I've tried the MS-hosted Windows mailing lists and they seem incredibly slow, as do their forums. There's a plethora of smaller forums, which I'm willing to have a go on, but I was wondering if anyone on here moonlighted on The Other Side and had good recommendations?

[0] Provided, of course, that they top post
