Getting ready to take 70-620

    So I got my MCP by passing the 70-282 about 3 weeks ago and next week I'm
    taking the 70-620 for my MCTS. I'm averaging about 85-95% every practice
    test. My training of choice was the Microsoft Press Configuring Windows
    Vista Client which I found to be a great resource. Also I've had about a
    year and a half experience with Vista (its definitely become my favorite
    OS). The Measure Up practice tests are pretty cool with a few minor
    exceptions. I found a couple of the questions to be incorrect, but oh well.
    Only found like 2 out of 300 that were incorrect.

    Anyway I just wanted to say hi to everybody as I'm new to the Microsoft
    Communities. I've been in telecom and IT for about ten years and just
    recently became interested in certifications and now find it addicting.

    On another note...does anyone find the Vista-Bashing Apple commercials
    irritating? Vista might have a bad name but its a great product.

    Actually, no. :)

    Truth is, as usual, Microsoft thought Vista's issue was "bad marketing" or
    "not enough marketing", so they're throwing money at it.

    What's especially notable is that they did this in the fact of planning the
    announcement for Windows 7 only weeks after making the decision to "throw
    money" at Vista marketing.

    If there's one thing I know about the fickle software buying community is
    that the announcement of Windows 7 just killed any future sales of Vista!

    I tend to agree with Microsoft on this. Vista has a bad reputation from its
    early days. Many people I know had been unaware that Vista issues had been
    resolved and it has become a stable and very cool OS. The problem I have
    with the Apple commercial is that they are trying to create the impression
    that Microsoft would rather spend money on marketing to create a false image
    of Vista being stable than actually correcting the Vista issues when in
    fact, Microsoft has already spent the time and money stabilizing Vista and
    now they are spending money on marketing
