    As I see, Promo-Codes for Server 2012 Beta-Exams are only for the TechEd. Won't there be provided promo codes at base of the MSE-Datebase as MS did before?? I have no chance to get top the TechEd??

    So just to confirm, there will be some "outside of techEd" beta opportunity?  I'll be a bit disappointed if not :(
