* New struggle for current MCSEs
For those who are MCSE 2003, Microsoft has some good news.
Yes, the endless struggle for being certified by Microsoft AND being current MCSE or MCP has entered into a new phase: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-649.mspx
What bothers me that the Microsoft Marketing department, well in advance before the final release of Windows 2008 server, already offers the new certification in the run for more revenue that the new certification will generate. The product is not there, yet, but the certification is already there (beta).
Why to offer beta certification? It's pure simple. If you want to try passing the beta for free, you will obviously have to learn the product that was not released to the general public. And this IS the goal. Along with the money current MCSEs will pay for the exam (not the beta) later, Microsoft will achieve the goal to have more ambassadors of a new server operating systems, the ambassadors who will push it to their network environment...
Get your money ready, MCSEs!
