Programming questions?

Is this site open to programming questions regarding Microsoft products? I.e., C#, .NET, etc.?

So far I see a FAQ entry suggesting that programming questions would be welcome and could overlap with Stack Overflow. But the only C# question asked so far was closed within a few hours because it's a "duplicate" to a SO question.

So I think some clarification is definitely needed here. Is this site applicable for C#/.NET programming questions? If so, then I think some overlap with SO should be expected, and "question exists on SO" shouldn't be used as a reason to close questions on MS Q&A.

@StephenCleary we are supporting a small amount of services. If anybody asks a question about a non-officially supported question, we definitely welcome it.

The reason I closed this question is because it is an exact question in Stack Overflow. While I agree with you that asking the same question in two platforms is OK, the intent of that question was not that. The original question in Stack Overflow is from 8 years ago, and it was properly answered.

I hope the difference is clear. Let me know if not.
