Exchange/Lync/Office 2013 now available

well, so much for “available to technet subscribers in mid november” – Exchange, Lync and Office 2013 are available on the technet downloads site now….

Exchange 2013 is kind of usless right now – as to interoperate with exchange 2010, SP3 is required (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996719(v=exchg.150).aspx) – and SP3 isnt out yet – and according to this (http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2012/09/25/announcing-exchange-2010-service-pack-3.aspx) wont be out until “1st half” of 2013…. thats a potential long wait…. so really, the product has bene released before its ready.
