Notes
My opinion on the updates themselves is that we are getting small amounts of features as well as known security issues released on a relatively timely schedule. There is a noted emphasis on quality and a willingness to fix issues that come up prior to release. Hopefully now that this is public no major issues will be found. With Service Pack 1 on its way next year, I think we will see continued improvement in the quality of future patching for Exchange.
