Exchange 12 Beta 1 available as CTP

I just saw this on Paul Robichaux's blog. Exchange 12 will soon be available as a Community Technology Preview (CTP). I strongly urge all Exchange 5.5/2000/2003 administrators to download this Beta, put it in a TEST environment, and get familiar with the new features and functions. Don't get discouraged! It is somewhat different and there are some things that may take you by surprise. Beta 2 of Exchange 12 will be later in the year and should be public. By the way, there is a 32-bit version of E12 that you can use for testing, lab, and classroom environments, but you won't see some of the significant performance gains as you will with the official 64-bit version.

Word of warning. Do NOT under any circumstance install this in your production organization. Please, please, please do NOT install it in production. Lab and test environment ONLY.
