https://docs.microsoft.com.

Much of the MSDN and other sources are being pull into here.
Is it an improvement?    There are some improvements.  But.
So far the search results are too inclusive.  One gave me 94K results.  At that point it's a waste of time.

If you have feed back I can get it back to the group.

Maybe it's too early for me but where is the search box? Shouldn't it be on the first page?

As my company makes is way in the world of O365, I had noticed this change and have some likes and dislikes. I frequently use the "feedback" button to offer whether I found what I was looking for or not. 

I would say that I've definitely noticed an improvement on the quality of articles in general.  I love the ones that offer a "quick steps" at the top for someone who's at least fairly familiar with what they are doing, but then more detail at the bottom.  

But to me the worst thing is that I've noticed many of them are dropping the "last updated" information.  This is HORRENDOUS!!  With the speed at which MS is changing the products themselves, an O365 article written 2 years ago could be completely irrelevant and a waste of my time.  If they are removing that info because they are embarrassed at having old data, then that's an awful reason.  

So as others indicated ... yes, I use google for searching, and then use their Advanced tool to set a time-frame for the articles I'm looking for ... usually looking for updated within the past 12 months, sometimes 6 or 3 months.  But even so, it would still be nice to know when I land on it, when it was last touched.
