When reality meets TechEd
Tonight at the partner group meeting I had a beta copy of Exchange 2010 to hand out.
And no one wanted it.
The reality of the "real world" is that no one has time to play with the betas and the stuff not yet out, they are dealing with the reality of the here and now. Here and now is still getting up to speed on Exchange 2007. It's realizing that the way to control/manage public folders in Exchange 2007 is not with a wizard or a GUI, but with a tool. It's realizing that while many in the desktop world is waiting with baited breath for Windows 7 to come out as they skipped over Vista, as far as the Exchange and Server world is concerned, messaging and servers move a lot slower. It is not trivial to move and migrate this stuff over.
The reality is that we'll be supporting and maintaining Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2007 long after Exchange 2010 comes out.
