Ted from Eric – MSDN Universal Isn’t

Ted links to Eric Sink’s note about the new pricing for MS Dev stuff.

I agree with Eric’s observation about what MSDN Universal is supposed to mean. If MS wants smaller dev shops to promote Team System, then they have to make it available.

I think Team System looks like it has a lot of GREAT concepts that even smaller shops will benefit from – but if I was paying $2500 US for MSDN Universal , I would still have to pay an additional $6000 for all the features of Team System. My argument may go:

“Hey I’m the chief cook and bottle washer in my company – I’m the Architect, the Developer and Tester and you want me to promote Team System to my clients but I have to pay for it? I don’t think so.”

Sounds like someone’s foot just got shot off.
