Microsoft "This week marked the real launch of the new Microsoft.com home page. And as someone who has been involved on and off with the project from the moment it was conceived, I thought I'd tell you the story, albeit extensively abridged, behind the new Microsoft.com. Grab a seat." I love the new Microsoft site. It looks very clean and focused.

I think microsoft schould do a Visual C runtime redistributable that has 2005, 2005-sp1, 2005-atl, 2008, 2008-sp1, 2008-kb (issue fixes available from windows update) 2010, 2010a, 2010-sp1. In an al in one package for x64 users with both the x32 and x64 libs in them så i do not have to download 20 files (10x32 10x64) and install from their nowadays awful download site to get basic things working.
Also an unified installer would not hurt for that package either.

edit: clarification.
