All, there are a lot of posts asking for more information on products, in particular BizTalk and Host Integration Server.  There are a series of recent and upcoming webcasts that detail a lot of the information being requested – here is a listing of some that may be of interest.  In addition Simon Guest has recorded a series of 14 short 15-minute videos on web services interop with specific vendor technologies such as WSAD and MQSeries.  All of these can be found at http://www.interopmonth.com/">http://www.interopmonth.com, Simon’s can also be found via his blog at http://weblogs.asp.net/smguest/articles/webcasts.aspx.  In addition, if any community members want more detailed information at a local level, please send an e-mail to imms@microsoft.com and we will be happy to connect you with either a telephone briefing or a local developer evangelist who can provide deeper engagement on any of these products.
