said by raythompsontn:Exchange Server is a huge POS for mail. When you scale it you need huge amounts of servers, storage, and it's extremely complicated. And since mail is all stored in a database restoring mail is a pain, as is corruption. said by itguy05:
Nor do they make software that scales well....
Really? Ever heard of Server 2008 DataCenter edition? How about Exchange Server? Perhaps SQL Server with a multi-terrabyte database with replication?
I doubt it was Silverlight as the scaling on your desktop is not an issue.
