...hold up a sec while I tell you what I know. We held betas for Forefront exam 71-557 and Windows Server 2008 transition exams 70-648 and 70-649 (learn more about the 2003 to 2008 transition path) at TechEd last week, because it is a great way to find a lot of the right candidates in one place at one time. However, we will likely have additional seats to fill on those betas, and will follow the standard beta process to invite target customers. We are not taking a waiting list or promising seats to individuals, unfortunately; if you’d like to participate you need to review the information listed here. If you have participated before, you will likely receive an invite—but there is a lot of interest and we can’t guarantee a spot to anyone. I hope you get one, though. I'm pulling for you!
