I really like the changes being made in Exchange to simplify management, DAG configuration and
monitoring.  Keep it simple for sure.

Another nice article on some new features with Exchange 2013-sp1/Windows Server 2012 R2.  Creating
a DAG with no AAP sounds interesting and certainly makes things simpler.

Namespace planning in Exchange 2013

I really like the changes they made in Exchange 2013 to simplify namespace planning.  It's especially useful for site failovers when DAG's are used.  Check out part 1 of the series:

CAUTION:  Microsoft released SP3 for Exchange 2010 and it has the same 'bug' that SP2 had.  If you
attempt to install the SP with an execution policy defined, the installation will fail and your server will be inoperable.  The only recourse is a /m:recoverserver.  Why they allow the install to run instead of just checking for this condition is crazy!

Another iOS-Activesync bug has been found that causes excessive log generation caused
by iOS 6.1 devices.  Apple really needs to get their act together on this as it's been a recurring
problem.

Seems like the consensus from many people is Exchange 2013 is not ready for primetime:
