An Exchange 2007 About-Face

Who says Microsoft doesn't listen to customers? Because it clearly paid attention to those of you who want to move to Windows Server 2008 R2, but don't want to throw out a perfectly good Exchange 2007 installation in the process.

Microsoft originally had its messaging code monkeys making sure that Exchange 2010 was a perfect fit for Windows 2008 R2. After more than a few howls, it changed course, re-assigned a bunch of programmers, and voila! Exchange 2007 works.

Actually, the two don't work together quite yet -- and Microsoft isn't saying exactly when the compatibility update will arrive.
