    Second shot has saved me a lot of money this year so I'm glad to see it back.

    This is a second shot for Microsoft to not lose all their certified engineers to other technologies. I know that I have no plans to go down the Windows 2012 route from a certification point of view, Microsoft have lost the plot with the direction they are trying to take the company and I say bring back Bill.

    I feel your pain Simon! My MS certs are on hold for the moment as well... presently working on other certs but it's good to know they are doing the second shot, was kind of expecting this to come around soon.
