    i was thinking about my next step i.e. 70-621 but i just saw on the microsoft website that it is going to be retired on march 31, 2011 :-(

    It was an opportunity for existing MCDST's to get both MCTS and MCITP with only 1 exam.

    Any other alternatives?

    The only alternative is taking the individual 70-620 and 70-622 exams. There's no upgrade path for the Windows 7 certs... you'd have to take those individually as well.

    Yes there are alternatives:

    1. Do the 70-620 & 70-622 exam, instead of the upgrade to gain the MCTS/MCITP combination for Vista
    2. By-pass the MCITP: Enterprise Support Technician all together and do the two individual exams: 70-680 & 70-685 or
    3. Do the new Windows 7 upgrade exam (70-682), this will upgrade the MCDST and MCITP: EST to the new Windows 7 MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7

    Yup, it seems to me like the alternatives are to take the exams separately if you want to pass the Vista exams.
