    Unhappy Microsoft to close the Encarta Encyclopedia

    Microsoft is discontinuing its MSN Encarta encyclopedia software and services over the course of this year, as Ars Technica is reporting.

    From the Microsoft Web site:
    “On October 31, 2009, MSN Encarta Web sites worldwide will be discontinued, with the exception of Encarta Japan, which will be discontinued on December 31, 2009. Additionally, Microsoft will cease to sell Microsoft Student and Encarta Premium software products worldwide by June 2009.”
