Microsoft Exchange Delivers Viruses

As of 12:00 PM Eastern on 27-Aug-07, the Flash animation at the top of the Microsoft Exchange Server page shows a swirl of “smoke” displaying all the benefits that Exchange Server purportedly delivers, email, compliance, calendaring, viruses, voicemail, unified messaging, viruses, flexibility, viruses… Thanks to Marshall Clow for pointing this one out.

Where did it come from – a disaffected graphic artist taking a pot shot, or a marketing bullet point gone horribly wrong? We’ll likely never know, though the animation certainly answers the question of why Apple didn’t build Exchange support into the initial release of the iPhone – not enough time to make the iPhone sufficiently virus compliant.
