Engineering problem or excuse?

Finally I do want to update all on one other piece of feedback we have received - allowing the in place upgrade of the operating system under Exchange.  Technically the work required to provide this capability is consistent with the work we would need to do to support an in-place upgrade of Exchange itself.  As such the amount of work needed is outside the scope and complexity of what we can do in a post release product update.  Still we do understand the demand and desire and it is something we will continue to look at for future versions of the product.
This was posted in the context of supporting Windows 2008 R2 Server for Exchange 2007, marking one of the first times Microsoft has undone the classic Exchange operating system + application server rip-and-replace.  But an in-place server upgrade is still something Exchange admins can only dream of... or, as in some of the comments, deny the need for.
