    Apparently everything now counts at MS.There is a good deal of deployment questions on the Win7 Pro Administrator exam...I did the beta for that one.

    I did the OEM for XP several years back.It was not even
    classed as a "real Cert". I did receive a T-Shirt for the "achievement" and MS has no records of me doing it.I had hopes of building OEM boxes or working for Dell back then.:)
