I've been using ActiveWin.com (and their XBox companion site) for years to get new information about Microsoft on a daily basis, but their draconian use of pop-unders on every page request has finally gotten the better of me. I am boycotting their site.
Anyone know of a good replacement for Microsoft related information that is timely and not driven from Redmond? I know of great XBox/360 sites, just no good Microsoft related ones. The Microsoft sites I find are usally either fan-boy MS sites or M$-hater sites. Neither of which are particularly helpful.
