I would look at the support for Exchange 2007 as a solid indicator as that’s what you are probably migrating your email off of. For Exchange 2007, the last support date is April 11, 2017. Finding the same information for Windows server 2008 is nearly horrific.  I had to look at Vista sp2 as the matching desktop OS to get the support date. - read more

Not the patching, not the dealing with customizing the menu system (more on that later) but printers. Flat out I have had more issues with personal laserjet printers than anything else.  Network based printers, my Ricohs have been relatively easy to set up.  Two of them were picked up just fine, one – a slightly older one – I set it up as a tcp/ip printer and had the operating system pick up the generic Ricoh driver. - read more
