Overnight I received the news that Microsoft has deemed me worthy once more of the Most Valuable Professional award for my 15th year. This award is given for contributions to the community around a given product, in my case it’s Windows Server for Small and Medium Business. I believe I’m one of only 3 people in Australia with the award in this category, so it’s rather esteemed company I find myself in. I’ll admit that I’m not fond of some of the decisions Microsoft has made over the last few years with respect to the needs for the Small and Medium Business sector, but I hold great hope for the cool things I see in the next generation of Windows Server due to be released next year.
Thank you Microsoft for considering me worthy of such an award.
