Teams launched into public preview on 2nd November 2016, then four-and-a-half months later, the platform became generally available on the 14th March 2017.

They started in October setting up new small (sub 500 seat) M365 tenants in Teams Only mode.

Although, a couple of Power Shell lines and you can go back to Skype Only or Islands mode.

Microsoft has to get as many companies to want to change to Teams as possible and they are starting with the low hanging fruit.

They are also making a big song and dance about larger companies that have decided to take the plunge, including themselves.

Skype for Business (and Lync) has a very loyal fanbase of users and IT professionals globally. Skype for Business Server is the one you install on-premises on your own servers or consume as a service from a private cloud service provider.

The instant messaging client has three main pillars of use: messaging, meetings and voice. Skype for Business Server is the “full fat” product with all the features.

They quickly retracted that statement in a panic, so they could figure out how to explain it better.
