microsoft acquired Sysinternals

Sysinternals a well known company for the tools like, processmon, filemon and regmon, ie filemonitoring and registry monitoring tools and some other freewares also. now microsoft acquired this company and now microsoft hosted this tools in its website.

my question here is , sysinternals was a independent company they were hacking the internals of the system, and creating lots of freeware, but i dont know what is going to happen here afterwards
because the sysinternals man is loaded with lot of other interesting work at microsoft.

one advantage of this aquisation is.
i can able to use these tools in the coorporate environment
and one more is i dont get security warning message when i run these tools.

i dont know what others are thinking.

i request microsoft to develop more tools like this, and dont remove any sysinternals tools from the website and provide these tools in the upcoming versions like windows vista.

Nunit - and open source

one of my friend asked me about Nunit, it that a framework or not,
i told him it is a unittesting framework.
and it contains a dll , which we need to include in our test project and compile the test project.
and tools included are nunitConsole which helps us to run the unit testcases in the console mode.
and NunitGUI which is used to run the testcases in the GUI mode.

and Nunit can be integrated with the Build task , and can be put in the build server and use cruise to execute the testcases .

Iam a fan of microsoft. but i dont like the strategy microsoft follows.
for instance , it has developed its own unit testing framework. which can be executed inside the visual studio.

but the visual studio testcases can also be executed with the nunit.

Due to the fast change of framework (dotnet), the open source documentation tool died.
and microsoft has introduced a new tool which is known as SandCatle.

i dont know whether it is possible to execute the Unit testcases written using Visual studio testing framework, can be executed without installing
(ie) i use Visual studio to develop the testcases. compile the dll and run them in the dll without visual studio.
my question here is whether microsoft providing any free tool to execute the testcases without Nunit.

installing mozilla thunderbird in windows xp and norton antivirus

when you install any internet aware applications, like news agreegaters, the norton antivirus does not allow them to access the internet, so these applications does not tell you that norton firewall is stoping the access, so manually created a firewall rule stating that allow access to thunderbird to use internet.

the problem is for some applications norton firewall tells that program is accessing the internet -"do you want to allow it or block it". why it is not informing for thunderbird.
