MS NZ Partner's Action Pack updated

, posted: 12-Jan-2007 13:09

From Microsoft NZ's Partner's website, it seems that they finally have included Vista and Office 2007 to their January update pack. The Windows Vista is Business edition, and Office 2007 is Enterprise edition, other Office 2007 products are also available, replacing the Windows XP and Office 2003 suite. At this stage, the OEM contents are all deemed expired. There doesn't seem to have Vista Ultimate or Vista Home Premium OEM to test on, which is a departure from the previous OEM content where one was able to test Windows XP MCE build. Anyhow, it's good to see that the Vista and Office 2007 suite are finally made it way into Microsoft's Partner Action Pack subscription. Note: It is free to register as a Microsoft Partner, and there are further 2 tiers membership to enrich your organisation for being a Microsoft Partner. For more information about being Microsoft Partner, check out their Partner Programme (NZ). And for comparison of different level of membership.

Are you saying it's free to register and receive the software, or do you pay an additional for the software packs?

Thanks Nathan for adding a bit more information to what Action Pack is. Being a Microsoft Partner definitely does open up good opportunity for these specialists, utilising the softwares and applications in the business. It is greatly benefiting any small-scale IT business partners in providing IT expertise and experience to their customers.
