Such a strong statement coming from Steve means a lot.

BTW, here is an interesting note on the new version of BrightStor. Version 9
came out as a result of Windows Server 2003 and Exchange 2003. OK, ok.

HOWEVER, I installed the full trial on a Windows Server 2003 DC, and guess
what, it rebooted, and rebooted, and rebooted, and...

Had to go in safe mode, disable all the BrightStor services, then boot
normal and uninstall.

Turns out, BrightStor 9.0 was bassed on testing with Windows Server 2003
Beta2.  The released version of Windows Server 2003 requires BrightStor

Their own sales people did not know this.
