    Exclamation Has DistroWatch bitten the dust?

    I did a search and found nothing, so please pardon me if this has already been posted.

    As of this minute, it appears that didtrowatch.com does not exist. Has anyone else heard about this? I heard about it on dslreports.com, tested it myself, and I get a screen saying the site does not exist. No one there knew any details, either. I also searched Google and Google News.

    Distro Watch has been a valuable resource for many years.

    Ironic, seems that distrowatch is hosted on a Windows server which is currently down http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=major
