Somesegar just announced that Microsoft is letting BizSpark Startups keep their production licenses after they graduate.
The program is designed to get people hooked on the Microsoft platform. They just removed a major hurdle for companies who were worried about what happens after they exit the program (not that the licensing issue goes away, mind you). Anyway, BizSpark was already a great deal for startups with a Microsoft bent and now it is a lot better.
Great move by Microsoft. The Microsoft developer story is truly a great one, and getting better all the time.
