GotDotNet Shuttered

Looks like Microsoft decided to shut down the GotDotNet Web site. According to Microsoft, the move is intended to eliminate redundancies with other Web resources and reflects declining traffic on the site.

The Partners, Resource Center and Microsoft Tools have already been shuttered, and Private workspaces, Team pages and Message Boards will be next on March 20. By April, the GDN CodeGallery will be dark. The whole schmear will fall offline on June 19, according to the projected schedule.

The decision is hardly a surprise. Microsoft has put its weight behind CodePlex and wants to make sure that subset sites like GotDotNet aren't robbing it of momentum.

Check out a nice synopsis of the history of GotDotNet and its eventual demise at the .NET Sweatshop (v2) blog.
