Got a client that uses ESRI for server-based mapping in his LBS solution.  ESRI 
is less expensive from some of the other options (notably MapPoint Server) but 
his customers have a couple of beefs with it.  For example when plotted 
positions happen to be close together the labels overlap in a way that makes it 
impossible to read some of them.  ESRI's maps also don't have highway exit 
numbers.  And he's apparently not entirely thrilled with ESRI's response time 
in addressing support issues.  Does anyone have anything else they have tried 
that they can recommend?
