BUT

I understand why: Online proctored (OP) exams allow you to take an exam in the comfort of your home or office, often within 15 minutes of registering, while being monitored by an offsite proctor.

BUT

I completely don’t undestand why: why again Microsoft forgets about Poland; forgets, or is taking deliberate action agains Microsoft Professionals in Poland. Is not first time when I feel as:

A Man of Worse Origin.

We (in Poland) experienced many of similar stories: no availability of Microsoft Zune, no availability of X-Box Online, no availability of Sufrace 2 or 3 at TechEd and more. Why Microsoft, Why? Even some exams will be available in future, maybe, someday, in 2016 or 2020, why we are Peoples of Worse Origin?
