Could it be that there's not a lot happening with Google and Apple, so the hacks are looking to fill the space with MS news. To be fair, this is approaching the busy period for Microsoft so there's more info coming out of Redmond than normal. Plus, it's earnings time and Microsoft have surprised the market by doing well.
When we post items that get a lot of clicks, our bells ring, so we post more of that item in the future. Microsoft rings bells, probably because many of the people on CodeProject work with VS or other Microsoft products.
And there really hasn't been much Apple/Google/Oracle stuff lately. The 30 year anniversary of the Mac notwithstanding.
