Betas go bye-bye as soon as the product goes GA, Promotional stuff that I
don't care about goes away immediately. Promotional stuff which is useful
stays around until it is either superseded, or for an out-of-date product,
or I just have no need of it, at which time it goes away (ave. longevity is
about 6 months). Disks for products that I do not use, support, or ever
suspect that I'll use go away. Product disks that I use or might use I keep
until the product has been replace and I no longer use the old version.
P.S. You are away that the MAPS usergroups are now called Forums that you
can access on the MS Partners web site?
