Exchange and SharePoint on Cloud Nine

Cloud versions of Exchange and SharePoint have been put through their virtual paces by a bevy of beta testers, who now say this stuff is good enough for release. As far as I know, the features are the same as the site-installed versions.

I'm curious to see a real economic analysis comparing the cost of the subscription services to installing, running and managing it all yourself. Any answers, readers? Shoot your conclusions to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
