Empower for ISV's: FAIL
I was just thinking back to Mix when I remembered some mention of the ISV program, where a couple hundred bucks a year gets you MSDN and such. The catch is that you have to release some kind "packageable" software. Seriously? Does this make sense from the company moving all of its stuff to Web-based solutions and driving the developer community in the same direction.
Not very well thought out, actually.
