Hi, don't know if someone noticed that ,since this year (or even earlier, but in November it worked), the Blog by UXEvanglist, who leaked Informations about Builds, which never got leaked, got deleted. It now redirects to a (un)serious Windows "Leak" site... So now we have to use WayBack machine to view the information he leaked. Luckily his vids are still online on youtube.

That site has been dead from ~2 november 2009, more then 2 years. It has since then been redirected to http://msftkitchen.com.
See the about page:
Formerly known as UX Evangelist, the purpose of Microsoft Kitchen is to provide a completely unique avenue for Microsoft news, reviews, rumors, speculation, and anything else that fits the Microsoft bill! Instead of quoting or rewording news from other websites, my content is solely derived via my own research and investigative methods (see: kick-ass investigative journalism). As such, I encourage all who visit to interact via the comments section under posts and to please help spread the word!

It was a good source of info for dev builds of Vista but it had to die eventually, being inactive for quite some time. Good to hear that videos are still on the tubes (I doubt the Internet Archive would store them due to size limits).

It's always interesting to see who all reads my site! I appreciate the fanfare, but I moved UXEvangelist to MSFTKitchen back when I did because I began covering far more than just UX-related Microsoft stuff. The reason so much of the build-related stuff died is because I stopped caring about Microsoft as much as I did years ago (got busy with life, career, etc.). It's been quite a long time since I've written anything on MSK, and the reason for that is because I was hired by ZDNet. It's my primary job at the moment and, to be honest, it pays far greater than UXE/MSK ever did for the amount of time and energy I put into them.
I still post about Microsoft-related stuff, but only when the story is good enough to go on ZDNet. Follow me on Twitter if you want to catch the times I write such posts.
Oh, and if you want a real blast from the past, check out uxevolutions.com on archive.org. It was what I did briefly with AlphaAlien and ZoRoNaX before I decided to step aside and start UXEvangelist. If I recall correctly, there are still a couple of videos and images that load from the site, thanks to archive.org.
