Community Solutions at the KnowledgeBase

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I really like the Community Solutions articles in the Microsoft KnowledgeBase, written by Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVP's). They are insightful, at times slightly ironic and sarcastic and sometimes they make me laugh and almost wet my pants. You recognize these articles immediately when you look at the Knowledge Base article number: they all start with 555.

There are a lot of KnowledgeBase articles that I believe to be magnificent:
