Longtime Microsoft-centric journalist and blogger Paul Thurrott has left Supersite for Windows, and the website he founded sixteen years ago, and its sister site Windows IT Pro, for reasons explained in his farewell post. The sites (the former of which is still branded 'Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows' for now, but that will surely change) will be maintained by a staff of journalists employed by Penton, an information services conglomerate.

Thurrott's new site, thurrott.com, went live on January 17 with a photo of a coffee cup; the site's tab headings indicate a continuation of the Microsoft focus, but the tag "News & Analysis for Tech Enthusiasts" leaves the door open for broader coverage. Thurrott has also signed on as a contributor to Petri IT Knowledgebase; the timing of the move was not coincidental:

So when Blue Whale Web Managing Partner George Coll and I had the opportunity to bring Paul aboard as a contributor to the Petri IT Knowledgebase and to partner with him to launch an all-new tech website at Thurrott.com, we jumped at the chance.

    It may very well be an MS and Friends only site. Given the fact that there are a lot of us in this world (though not so many on this site) that put food on the table and a roof over our heads by supporting MS products, these sites are useful.

    Windows IT Pro has been a very useful site to me over the years, I hope that Thurrot.com becomes a good repository of knowledge.

    Remember, if Windows didn't exist, all the Linux crowd would have to bitch about is systemd!
