On December 14th Microsoft RTMed thier new homepage at Microsoft.com.

The new design has been under beta testing since July 2006 and the main enhancement seems to be around making the site easier to navigate as the Navigation panel has been moved from the left side of the screen to the right, as well as being shortened and seperated from the featured items.

The site is the fifth most visited site on the internet and is currently being migrated to Office Sharepoint 2007 servers.

Well, I must say, they're finally Web 2.0, but they need to move the Navigation menu back to the left side. I know it's already been addressed on the site, but if you look below the main spotlights of the site, the nav. bar is on the left. Thus, it would make more sense for both bars to be on the left.

Then again, they believe the Dock---errr---Sidebar should be on the right side of the screen anyways. =P

I think it looks nice also, much more polished looking and less cluttered than before. :)

I saw a small beta preview of the site a few months ago before they released it and it was a little diffrent than it is now, but it still looks better than the old one.
