Once a month Steve Ballmer sends an exec email to subscribers. These emails usually talk about Microsoft's vision/strategy in certain areas. In this month's installment, Steve discusses Microsoft's strategy to meet the unique business and IT needs of the "mid-market" (defined as 25-500 PCs, ~1,000 employees, 1-15 servers, etc). Steve mentions Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 Workgroup Edition as being a first step towards helping mid-market "IT Generalists" get a handle on their IT infrastructure. Future products such as "Centro" will provide an integrated user experience for computer/server management.
