It’s not my job anymore, but I can’t pass up the opportunity to comment on KC’s post about Exchange 2000 and Windows Server 2003.
In the year or so after we made that decision, I had countless discussions with customers who thought we made the decision for fiscal reasons, we were just trying to squeeze more money out of our customers, etc etc… let’s just say that it’s really frustrating to have your customers think you’re evil. 🙂
I’ll count myself as one of those customers, though I never got a chance to comment directly to KC or anyone else at Microsoft. But, it’s good to know that MS isn’t always just a looking for another way to make a quick buck or using forced obsolescence. Also, I can only imagine what happens when someone two or three levels above you tells someone else two or three levels above them that you said it can’t be done.
