So, while reading the other blogs and news sites I check daily, I came across this interesting article. It seems that Microsoft’s .NET 3.5 SP1 has caused yet more problems. This time with Exchange 2007 on SBS 2008. With this latest issue that has now cropped up with .Net 3.5 Its time to remember a few things…
1) In Microsoft’s defense, they can’t test everything before releasing stuff. That is why hot fixes exist.
2) Never just accept patches. Always find a way of testing them yourself, even if it is on a personal machine, and research the patches also to see what problems other’s have had. The more reports you find, the more prepared you can be about any issues with it.
I know they are simple thoughts, but just watching how Microsoft has screwed up with this latest version of .Net it just amazes me that people don’t think of these things. Course, I am one to speak.
