Longhorn Follows CodeGuru's Lead!

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. In simple terms, however, RSS feeds are simply links to XML files that follow a relatively specific format.

CodeGuru includes four RSS feeds:

These links are available from the CodeGuru site, or you can copy the links from the above list. Many newsreaders and other programs will directly import these lists. Because the lists are updated on a regular basis, by linking to them, you will always have access to the most recent information.
