Just a follow up on my thoughts.

1.  I have not heard that MS will not be giving a NFR of TechNet.. Hopefully that is a rumor and not the case.   The content is always great at Tech Ed, but the TechNet subscription is valuable to my business.  Guess we'll see what MS does

2. I don't expect a Surface RT to be free, but a significant discount should be available.   I would really like to have one, and be able to show to my customers.   I carry a Windows 8 phone (Nokia 920), a Windows I5 tablet (Samsung), Ultra notebook (HP).   Without a doubt I manage other vendors (Apple and Android) devices, but I constantly want to show my customers the MS value proposition which is usually there.
