What is OnMSFT?

Founded in 1998 as WinBeta.org, OnMSFT.com (pronounced On Microsoft) is one of the original Microsoft-centered communities. We are a Microsoft-oriented website, but we are not affiliated with Microsoft. Our intention is to provide you with in-depth Microsoft news and information. We’re Microsoft enthusiasts first and foremost, although we’re not shy about pointing out problems as they arise.

Our platform

As of March 2021, we’re running our own WordPress installation on a Linux Ubuntu/Nginx VM on Microsoft Azure. We use Cloudflare for CDN, GoDaddy for our domain registration, and Disqus for comments. If you have any issues with our site, please contact us and let us know.

Send a News Tip

We would love to hear from you if you know of a hot story that we missed. Simply contact us and give us a short description, title, and url to the story and it will be reviewed by our staff, with credits going to you of course (or if you wish to remain anonymous, just let us know)!
