    If it is true then we should be hearing news about the new MCSE pretty soon

    Official: Longhorn Server to Be Named Windows Server 2007

    It's official. Well, sort of. Windows enthusiast site ActiveWin.com reported this week that an unnamed Microsoft official has confirmed the final name for "Longhorn" server.

    And the winner is (drum roll, please) ... Windows Server 2007.

    "In addition, development has begun on the next series of MCSE certification tests geared for Windows Server 2007," the site reported.

      Mike how do you think the new MCSE will be structured? I mean if you look what they done to MCDBA - total revamp! Reckon something similar?

      Well I'll have a punt at it....

      I reckon they will section up the MCSE to MCITPRO admin and engineer, plus have a couple of different flavours of MCITPRO engineer - like security, messaging etc...

      Also something like MCSA with an additional [elective?] exam for the MCITPRO Administrator.

      Just my two cents worth...

      Completely. From what I understand, the MCTS will be lower-level certifications (like the MCP and MCDST), and the MCITP will be mid-level certifications (like the MCDBA/MCSA/MCSE). The MCA program will be the premier Microsoft certification, although I'm not sure how many will pursue it.

      It's not as simple as all that, though... there's gonna be a billion MCTS: Specialty and MCITP: Speciality certifications available. Makes for a mess, if you ask me.
