How many?

Towards the end of last year I read an article which stated that...

"Microsoft had reduced from 35 mail servers under Exchange 5.5, to 10 under Exchange 2000, with each server now supporting 3,500 mailboxes. Now with Titanium, that is being increased to 5,000, as multiple sites are supported by a single Exchange server. Microsoft now only has 19 Exchange servers."

I remember being impressed with those numbers at the time, especially as the company that I work for has 48 servers for a measly 10,000 users! (using 5.5)

Now that Microsoft have completed their deployment of 2003, I wonder how many servers they are now using?
