Microsoft Takes S+S Worldwide

OK, we're not going to lie to you. (We never do lie to you, actually, but in this case we're going to be ridiculously truthful.) Your editor just spent a decent chunk of Monday afternoon shoveling snow, uncovering cars and watching the neighbor clear the driveway with the second-greatest invention of all time, the snow blower. (The greatest invention is still air conditioning.)

So this might not be the most poignant, clever or analytical RCPU entry of all time. But it will be informative, starting with this week's news, lovingly crafted by RCP Editor in Chief Scott Bekker, that Microsoft is taking its online services worldwide.

Yes, these are the "Software plus Services" offerings that partners either freaked out about or loved at the Worldwide Partner Conference last summer. Now we'll get to hear complaining or praise in multiple languages from 19 mostly European countries, some of which are actually snowier than New England in the winter. We just hope that those who need them have snow blowers. The front steps were enough of a backache.

What's your take on Microsoft's S+S plan for partners? How long and dreary has this winter been for you? Comment, complain or gloat at [email protected].
