Brelsford: Office 365 Is at SBS 2000's Stage

When it comes to Windows Small Business Server, there are few independent observers as authoritative as Harry Brelsford, founder of SMB Nation.

And when Harry starts posting comparisons of where Office 365 stands now on a maturity scale relative to historical releases of Small Business Server, it's worth paying attention.
