On my first post I promised that we'd try and listen to your feedback and let it influence our thinking. I said back then and I'll say again that we won't always agree on what the "right" course of action is, but we will certainly listen and try and make changes where appropriate.
Fast forward a few months... when we heard several very important things from you all during our initial rollout of the Team System pricing and licensing. I'm happy to say that we've listened and changed our plans to address your concerns. We know you want as much advance notice as possible regarding product changes because you need to plan accordingly. Sometimes when we go out so early, though, we don't have all the answers completely nailed and this was one of those times. Now that we've had a chance to internalized your feedback and concerns, here are a set of concrete things we're doing to address them:
This version will not have any of the role based features nor will it include the limited TFS.
Hopefully this addresses a bunch of the pain that people were experiencing because they really wanted the Team System all up including the TFS server.
Thanks and keep the feedback coming. We really are listening.
