Are you planning your training?
Planted Talinum paniculatum verde "Jewels of Opar" , Melampodium Million Gold, Superbena Royale Silverdust, Intensia Blueberry Phlox hybrid, Surdiva Scaevola Blue, and Supertunia Pink Charm Petunia tonight. Need to order bulbs for the fall planting season soon. And thinking about fall planting means that everyone should be thinking about what education and training you might need to face the new world order we now live in. Keep an eye on www.thirdtier.net as they will be coming out with training.
Also did you catch the two HP/Microsoft Lync meetings today? It's pretty apparent that the transmorg (aka the Porcupine) to go from Essentials to normal server we will need to purchase the proper number of normal server cals and start over on our server investment.
But as was said in the lync meeting.. this is still a beta product and not yet locked down.
In the meantime it's time to learn more about Exchange. I can't remember if I blogged this or not?
Just spotted your post where you mentioned downloading Exchange 2010 "just to see how easy or hard it is to install".
I wanted to let you know that on my site I offer a free Exchange 2010 Boot Camp that runs through a single server deployment scenario and covers what is probably a good portion of what a small business setup would need.
It seemed to go down pretty well with a local SMB IT pro group I spoke at recently so perhaps your readers would also like to take a look:
(there is a paid option that is going into more complex multi-server scenarios, but for SBS folks the free version is probably more relevant)
If there's anything I can do to help out your readers with Exchange 2010 questions (eg "how do I do this thing I used to do in SBS?") please feel free to let me know.
