    I just saw on bink.nu that SUS 2.0 is going into beta testing this month... Do any of you guys have a place in this beta? Have MS not yet started looking for testers?

    I would really like to get in on this beta test ;)

    I heard it was coming out, but have no plans to beta test it. The one I setup for work has an identical server in the test enviroment (just in case the updates get screwy). I might test it out here at the house if I get a chance.
    I wonder what all changes are in 2.0? The only problem I have with the one right now is you can't push the updates, you have to wait for the client to connect.

    I probably won't be putting it into production for some time. But if 2.0 is going to do Office pushes I most likely will try it out in the lab. Updating office is getting to be a pain!

    Cool, I think we will also be implementing an SMS server soon, so we will have to see where that leads.

    I like the name change. Never really liked saying SUS, it almost sounds dirty!
