Not being rude - I genuinely want to understand what you have to say but at the moment am finding it a tad confusing.

I understand the issues surrounding not supporting 2007 on 2008R2 but it has made a lot of people stop and think twice about how to go foward from here. I am fairly neutral on this as I am only a small scale user of Exchange but for bigger players I can how this is a big headache.

I think there is a good arguement here to switch away from MS and chose GNU/Linux / Unix option for less bells and whistles type users, who just want their mail to go to and from with a choice of clients, MTAs, MDAs to modify if they wish. MS have a habit of overcomplicating certain aspects of their products and also leaving out some very useful features that other free systems have in them.
