    "Enterprise fanboys" on TechNet subscription shutdown


    Microsoft's sudden decision to shut down its TechNet subscriptions isn't sitting well with some IT pros and trainers. A new online petition has passed 5000 signatures, and some longtime Microsoft supporters are wondering whether the company is giving up on one of its most strategic assets.

    You clearly are not paying attention to what's going on in the enterprise space, or you couldn't say that with a straight face. There's at least 3x more going on in the enterprise space as the mobile or desktop space.

    LOL.. I'm very much aware of the magnitude of enterprise development - I was referring to their dropping support for the enterprise dev...and would most likely offer more support for store development.. am I missing something?

    I'm talking about what's going on in the System Center products, Windows Server products, SQL Server products, Azure, Dynamics, etc.. etc.. Microsoft actually sees mobile as playing a huge part of Enterprise, which is what InTune is all about.

    .. you have extrapolated what I referred to as enterprise - If you get the support for your WAN apps then no prob.

    I'm pretty sure anyone seriously concerned with enterprise development is already on MSDN, which has less restrictions than TechNet, activated products are usable longer, there are fewer restrictions on product usage in dev and testing, Visual Studio is included in all but the most lowly of subs, and technical support incidents for anything but a critsit in a dev / test environment are included at all levels of subscription.

    Assuming we're talking about actual enterprise development and testing, that's what MSDN subs are for. I know it's not a popular opinion in some corners of the internet, but it's still the truth.
