Petition Wants Microsoft to Continue TechNet

Another week and another petition. TechNet was retired by Microsoft this month to begin on August 31st. This didn’t sit too well with all of the enthusiasts and professionals who depended on the subscription service to keep up with the latest and best without going broke. An online petition has surfaced on which requires 5K signatures to be recognized; looks like they will make that and more. cool

IT Professionals and ISVs need affordable access to Microsoft products normally accessed through TechNet. Please continue TechNet or create an affordable alternative to MSDN subscriptions minus Visual Studio and associated developer tools. Currently, the only comparable MSDN subscription costs $6120.
