There are going to be a bunch of press releases and everything else that comes with a rebranding today, so I am not going to go into the details of the “why” with the new name. What I will say is that I really like the new name. It gives the old Communications Server product suite a great identity which I think it lacked with the CS name. How many other vendors are using the word “Communications” (you can throw “Unified” in there as well)? Nearly all of them. So it’s a great break away from what are now cliché product names.
So congrats to the Microsoft Team for deciding on a great new product name for a what's going to be the best release yet.
