“Thousands of people in our early Technology Adopter Program, or TAP, already rely on “14” to provide their phone, conferencing, messaging, and other communications, many of them since February.

There’s a webcast over at Technet Edge of Jaime Stark and John Durant (From TechEd) that is a must see.
Jaime Stark and John Durant tell us about some of the cool new capabilities in Office 2010 and Office Communication Server 2010 at Ch9Live during TechEd North America 2010. They discuss the keynote demo, trends they see happening in the communications industry, and various other topics such as:
Cool applications developed in Office 2010 and ways to develop to UC 2010.
How Live Meeting will now be merged into Office Communicator 2010
Does Office Communicator use WPF components?
Will there be an API for the new Skydrive / Windows Live Sync?
Where are all of the places you can co-author Office documents? Differences between sharing in UC and Co-authoring
HP has a “Microsoft product release chart” on its Large Enterprise Business page and it states that OCS 14 / 2010 will be released in Q4 of 2010 so in about a year from now, i would have hoped for Q2 since i predict that its going to have some kick ass features.
