Microsoft lets more MVPs into Windows

The company is expanding a program to give its Most Valuable Professionals access to Windows source code.

Microsoft said on Monday that it is expanding a program to give its Most Valuable Professionals access to Windows source code. Last October, it launched the Source Licensing Program for MVPs, who are technology enthusiasts outside of Microsoft recognized for their contributions to the company's online support community. The wider SLP effort now includes all MVPs who live in one of 27 approved countries, mainly in Europe.

"With this expansion of the MVP SLP eligibility, there will be an even larger community of MVPs able to offer quality help for people developing, deploying and securing Windows environments," Microsoft said. The program offers access to Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 as well as to future versions of the operating system.
