Beta Windows Secrets Lounge launched

By Tracey Capen

The new year brings a crop of new beta websites, including our very own Windows Secrets Lounge.

Lounge member t8ntlikly posted a URL (see below in Other Applications) for a French startup company that hopes to be an app store for Windows and a lot of other products. T8ntlikly invites everyone to watch that beta website.

We’d prefer you check out our beta site — the relaunched Windows Secrets Lounge. We’ve moved to a new platform, vBulletin, and we’ve refreshed the Lounge’s overall look. Our goal is simple — make it even easier for you to exchange ideas within the Windows community and get the answers you need to those vexing computing problems. Let us know what you think. More»
