    First paragraph: "Value Add Distributor (VAD)"
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    No, I know what it stands for. But what is their purpose, what do they do that makes them so special? Why has Microsoft started this "VAD" program?

    They "innovate in areas of virtualization, security and unified communications", and had to "present a business plan detailing how they were going to drive reseller readiness in one of the areas and agree to a defined investment in terms of people and qualifications."

    You'd have to ask Microsoft why it has started this programme, but I suspect it thinks it will help its business.

    wasn't there a story a week or so ago about an MS distributor buying drugs and hookers for some clients?

    that's rather innovative? Actually its probably normal operations.....
