Goodbye OCS, hello Lync!
As a long time user and fan of Office Communications Server, although I might be biased as it’s my day job, it’s great to see that we can now use the new name. Here’s the new naming convention which is very straightforward…just say Lync!
|Family||Microsoft Office Communications||Microsoft Lync|
|The server||Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2||Microsoft Lync Server 2010|
|The client||Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2||Microsoft Lync 2010|
|The service||Microsoft Office Communications Online||Microsoft Lync Online|
|The web client||Microsoft Office Communicator Web Access||Microsoft Lync Web App|
