MS will not provide hardcopy certificate anymore

Today, I receied July 2009 MCP Flash. It has big news. MS will not provide hardcopy certificate by default. If you need hardcopy, please pay $$$.

In my career, I took a lot of MS exam and got a lot of MS certificates. If they need me to pay extra $$ for my certificate, I will consider to end my MS certificate plan.

If you are not agree to MS new certificate arrangement, please goto the following url to express your angry and complain.

I left my comment to this url too.

Actually, I paid a lot of effort to take different MS exam from NT4 to Windows 2008. If exam will not provide paper printout certificate any more, I consider to discontinue my MS cert path in coming future. And in my peer group, I am one of the driver to encourage my peers to take MS exam. In coming, I will discourage my peers to take MS exam and technology. I am strongly disappointed to this arrangement.

I would like to propose the following suggestion for MS if they are really consider to our voice.

1. establish a plan for existing holder to choose to maintain the existing plan. They can order paper certificate w/o paying extra shipping and handling charge

2. Discount the exam fee (Not a short period to CHEAT user), deduct whole shipping and handling fee.

3. Send me an official email and tell me that it is MS new arrangement.
And please note it in the email “if you don’t accept it please do not use MS product”.

I am vvvvvery angry w/ this new arrangement.

I just planned my OCS and W2K8 virtualization in coming months. I will cut it. And I won’t suggest OCS as Enterprise Voice and IM solution to my customer. I will not suggest Hyper-V as Virtualization platform.

I will not take Win7 exam for driving new Desktop deployment.
