    You can still pursue similar other Client exams from Microsoft.

    For Vista:

    MCITP: Enterprise Support Technician
    Exam 70-620 (MCTS) + Exam 70-622 (MCITP)

    For Windows 7:

    MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7
    Exam 70-680 (MCTS) + Exam 70-685 (MCITP)

    You can still do MCDST - you just need to get both exams done before next March.

    Still worth going for!

    Yeah, just go for the MCDST. It's (in my opinion) one of the easier exams, and you've got nearly half a year to bag those two exams. Following that, do the upgrade for MCITP and you're set =)
