  7. 7. Quotes “ Within the land of IT, nothing is a bigger pain to own, manage and run than Microsoft Exchange. Everywhere you go customers have horror stories about the installation, maintenance and, above all, uptime of their Microsoft Exchange implementations. And worse yet, they will all tell you they are paying top dollar for the privilege because the expertise needed to successfully run a Microsoft Exchange server is some of the most expensive in the IT labor pool.” Michael Vizard, eWeek Even when the cost of the software licenses is factored out, upgrading from Exchange 2000 or 2003 to Exchange 2007 is significantly more difficult and expensive than the upgrade from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003. The two main reasons for this are Exchange 2007’s 64-bit requirement and the new message routing architecture. Peter Pawlak, “Exchange 2007 a Boon to IT”, Directions on Microsoft Update
