    Yep, it's the 70-621. This will give you MCTS: VIsta and the MCITP: EST (the new version of the MCDST).

    As for when the MCDST XP will be obsolote... Put it this way MS is only retiring the 2000 route next year, the 2003/XP route I would say still has a good few years life in it. As alot of companies are only just upgrading to XP now, the uptake of Vista in alot of companies will be like XP - Slow.

    Are you talking about Windows "Vienna" (formerly known as Blackcomb). Can't wait :) Hopefully I'll be more impressed with that than I currently am with Vista.

    The XP certification will become "obsolete" when companies stop using Windows XP. Considering that my last employer is still using Windows 2000, I'd bet that any XP-based certification will be useful for years to come.
