On November 1st, Microsoft launched the Microsoft Partner Network, which brought with it many new things, including new competencies and associated branding, benefits, requirements, and more.  Since that time, we have spoken with, heard from, and seen postings from many partners talking about what they have achieved so far in the new Microsoft Partner Network as well as questions and even some misunderstandings about various parts of the new Microsoft Partner Network.  I thought I would share with you a great blog article by Eric Ligman that answers all your questions around the new branding and more.
