2010 in Retrospection (Part 2)

One of the great surprises in 2010 was the popularity of WinDbg.org page. I had never thought it was so popular! Originally forwarded to a subdomain of Crash Dump Analysis Portal when introduced in February, 2008 as a way to quickly download Debugging Tools for Windows and set up symbols it was made a full domain in July, 2010 with corresponding Google Analytics setup. Since then it enjoys 7,000 - 9,000 visits per month with almost 93% return rate with Microsoft, Intel, HP, Road Runner, Dell, Citrix, EMC, CA, Samsung, Cisco, Symantec, AMD, IBM, Oracle, and McAfee among its biggest users. I myself find it very useful in the field when I need to quickly setup debugging components. To the best of my knowledge the page remains the fastest way to that. There will be more useful information linked to it in 2011.

Another trend is the rise of the online version of Debugged! MZ/PE magazine that was completely redesigned in August, 2010 and now approaches 2,000 visitors per month. In 2011 there are some new initiatives coming for this online magazine.
