No, I dont think you should feel cheated, if you look at the features
that Live Communication Server provides as opposed to the features that
were available in the Exchange 2000 IM feature, if you look at LCS I am
sure you will appreciate the features.
You cannot use any of the products provided with MSDN for a production

Subject: [exchangelist] Chat Requirment 
I wanted to implement chat server which comes with exchange. Now that MS
has st oped giving it with Exchange 2003, i need to find an alternative.
Why did MS do this ?? If my present company had exchange 2000 and if i
had pay extra for chat service when i move to 2003 then i feel cheated..
Do you guys agree with me ??
I just want employees to provide workgroup instant messaging with
address directory. Netmeeting with ILS server probably would have been
best solution, but i think it is absolute now. Communication server 2005
is a costly solution just for this requirement. 
Is there any thing else which is less cost or comes bundled with any MS
products in MSDN CD ..!!
