Watch out Microsoft Hosting Partners

During today’s PDC keynote speech, it was announced that Microsoft intends to make all of its server products available in an online hosted mode from Microsoft Online Services.

If you are a hosting partner you probably already new that SharePoint, Exchange & CRM are going, or have already gone this way.  You may have been clinging on to the fact that custom code and other in-depth extensibility features were not available from Microsoft Online Services, thus providing a niche of service for partners.  This too may be snatched away as custom cost was also mentioned as a feature that would be available from Microsoft in the future.

Oh well…  time for you to get into bio-engineering, etc.
