When can I download Lync Server 2010 RTM from MSDN site? Well.. you are not the only with that question in mind :), Lync Server team blogged the FAQ about their last announcement about RTM.
Last Wednesday I posted that we'd released Lync to manufacturing, meaning our code is locked and the product is ready. We received some great questions as a result, so I wanted to address a few of them here.
First, there are still a few more steps before Lync is officially available. As I noted in the blog our worldwide launch event is on the calendar for Wednesday, November 17th, 2010. The final milestone, known as GA or general availability, is December 1st, when existing customers who have maintained their SA (Software Assurance license), as well as new Lync customers, will be able to download Lync Server 2010 from the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC).
