"But legal wrangling aside, for organizations that are moving or have moved to Windows 2000 and Active Directory, Exchange 2000 is a very good thing--a robust, scalable messaging platform that will evolve with changing business needs. For others, Exchange 2000 is a very good thing only if they pick up and move to the Windows 2000 platform."
