Effective 7/16/2012 you removed Windows 7 Ultimate from the products
available with a technet plus subscription indicating that this is a
product removed because it's "not intended for use in an IT professional
managed business environment. For instance: Windows XP Home Edition."
I note that per
Windows 7 ultimate is no longer listed.
I strongly object to the removal of Windows 7 Ultimate from the technet
subscription. In my practice and in my SMB world, Windows 7 ultimate,
and not Windows 7 enterprise is the sku that I upgrade to when I need
bitlocker and thus it is indeed part of the managed IT environment in my
firm and in the firms that I see.
When I beta test, Windows 7 ultimate IS the sku I use to test with for
purposes of beta testing with Microsoft's server products and for patch
management deployment testing. The removal of this license hampers my
ability to test Microsoft products, to support the small business
community and to better support your products.
I respectfully ask you reconsider this decision and put back in Windows
7 ultimate as an available sku for the use of testing in my
environment. You are hampering my ability to support Microsoft's products.
Thank you for your reconsideration to this decision.
