Going back to our roots

When Tim Higgins first started Tom's Networking Guide for TG Publishing (TGP) I was not sure what would happen. But I did know that Tim was a unique voice on the Web, and we would not fail by being associated with him. Today, he launches SmallNetBuilder, and TGP is forunate to be a part of his vision. Tom's Networking always implied that it was a networking mirror of Tom's Hardware; Small Net Builder is a more accurate reflection of what the site is truly all about.

I'm looking for something similar, preferably free, that runs on Windows.
