Microsoft Lync Naming Convention

With the release of the Microsoft Lync and the change in name, here's how the new naming convention compairs with the existing product names.

Product New Name Old Name
Family Microsoft Lync Microsoft Office Communications
Server Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2
Client Microsoft Lync 2010 Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2
MS Online Service Microsoft Lync Online Microsoft Office Communications Online
Web Client Microsoft Lync Web App Microsoft Office Communicator Web Access
  • I don't think it's fair to call Lync Web App a new name for CWA, should list OWA as the new name for IM/presense and Lync Web App for conferencing.
