The new Lync Server 2010 unified communication server is not merely a relabeling of the previous Office Communications Server lineup -- it's real step forward in Microsoft's communication product line," writes InfoWorld's J.

Microsoft pulled that feature in Exchange 2003 and started down a path that has led us to the Office Communications Server lineup of servers and apps.
