"WHERE'S EXCHANGE 2010 AND SHAREPOINT"? (VIA bradley)

Extracted from the original “I'm getting a bit concerned about how we geeks don't read. Several times now in the SBS connect newsgroups people have posted up that they downloaded the "Aurora" beta and then asked "Where's Exchange 2010 and SharePoint"?

https://connect.microsoft.com/SBS/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=30128

First off read that. Okay it's not in a easily downloadable to your iPad, iPhone, Kindle or whatever but please... sign up for the beta and read that.

Okay how about this. How about reading the next sentence:

This guide provides an overview of the benefits of a server-based small business solution and introduces Windows Small Business Server Code Name “Aurora” (a new edition of Windows Small Business Server) and Windows Small Business Server “7”. It describes the new and enhanced features of Windows Small Business Server, presents scenario walkthroughs to highlight several of the new capabilities, and provides references to additional resources, including detailed installation instructions for the pre-release software.

Do you get the idea now that there's two versions coming to market? One is basically the features of Home Server with Active Directory, and the other is the next version of SBS v7.

There are some significant differences and if you go into this assuming that Exchange 2010 is in Aurora (which it's not) you might be interested to note the other things that are different.
