Microsoft has acquired Winternals Software and Sysinternals

I am a big fan of SysInternals freeware utilities and a regular visitor to Mark’s Blog. Today I have seen a post in Mark’s blog saying he is joining Microsoft

Some of the points from his post:

I’m very pleased to announce that Microsoft has acquired Winternals Software and Sysinternals. Bryce Cogswell and I founded both Winternals and Sysinternals (originally NTInternals) back in 1996 with the goal of developing advanced technologies for Windows.

What will happen to all those freeware? Here is his answer:

As for Sysinternals, the site will remain for the time being while Microsoft determines the best way to integrate it into its own community efforts, and the tools will continue to be free to download.

Looks like no more new freeware from SysInternals(Not a good news for me :( ). However Mark is saying that the existing tools will remain free.
