And what makes your think the Data Center Optimization Initiative is any 
different, when they are counting single servers instead of data centers?

If it was a rational, coherent plan; that would be great.  Instead I see 
lots of people spending years looking for servers, and writing reports 
about counting servers, and moving servers from on room to another room. 
What's the return on investment counting paperclips?

Declare victory now.
