Dear Live Communication Server people:
Dear LCS people....just saw this blog on the demise of Netmeeting in Vista and just wanted to remind you folks that I do love your Live Meeting server that allows me to have internal only messaging in my firm, allows me to track who's in the office and who's not and allows me to integrate it with Sharepoint. But I gotta level with you guys that I'm one of the wacko ones that got Software Assurance and caught the product somewhat reasonably priced ...and I even re-SA'd it to hang on to it.
Harold talks about the Exchange and LCS being under the same business group...but I just want to put in my two cents once again for a lightweight, no VOIP, no hosting of streaming media...just plain old 'chat' inside the office for quick messages.
Most of us in small business are using our own duct taped together solutions for an internal IM...but if you guys just happen to want to have another product to roll out...and yes, sorry, it's got to be cheap... a nice low feature internal only IM would be nice if you have some time.
