Microsoft Downloads - τις ξέρετε?

Η Microsoft έχει μια σειρά από συλλογές software που μπορείτε να κατεβάσετε και τελικα ίσως είναι πολύ περισσότερα από όσα ξέρετε. Και μια και το συγκεκριμένο ιστολόγιο το χρησιμοποιώ και σαν δικό μου σημειωματάριο, ας τα έχω μαζεμένα και κάπου:
  • IE Addons: Provides information and downloads about add-ons for the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser.
  • Microsoft Developer Network: The developer portal. Most content is restricted to subscribers but some can be accessed publicly.
