Hi folks,

We're working on a Microsoft Exchange Server story and need your help. PLEASE INDICATE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE QUOTED BY YOUR REAL NAME.

Microsoft has not laid out a roadmap for upgrading Exchange Server 2003, although it continues to release new management tools for existing versions.

1) Do you care that they have not announced concrete plans for the future of the product?

2) Are you happy with incremental upgrades?

All comments gratefully received.

Not being sarki but i thought " incremental upgrades " was Microsofts middle name.

Given that for most businesses will see exchange as a central system incremental upgrades are unlikely to be carried out. As a company we are looking at moving from 5.5 to 2003 but that is being treated as a project. An additional elements are more likely to be added in to resolve a specific problem and not just because they have been released.

You do wonder if MS plan to switch to this model so they don't have people wondering when the new version is coming along and can buy themselves more time.

Thanks Sir Radfordin - that's great.

Anyone else?

what Microsoft's long-term roadmap for their server products is, or even if they have one. They've just invited me to beta test a service pack for MS Windows server 2003, and it looks like a big one - they aren't accepting any testers who don't have broadband connections.
