So MS really does appear to be listening. They have provided revised bundling and pricing information for Team System.
The presence of Team Suite answers my concerns about there not being a ‘jack-of-all-trades’ offering. The inclusion of a limited licence Team Foundation Server is a great bonus for small teams. It looks like they will not be forced down the road of sticking with VSS or moving to SVN or the like.
Some folks may still balk on price. But I think that this is a positive response to community feedback.
The upgrade costs do seem to make getting a Universal licence now, an attractive way to upgrade in the future.
