Will Microsoft provide support for Exchange 2010 installed on Server 2008 R2 with Active Directory? I know they advise against this. They have for the past four Exchange versions. The concern is will they provide support?

This is pretty much what is done with SBS (exactly what is going to be done with SBS7). It's a compromise in security, performance, and stability. That being said, it is a supported configuration.
