The fast-approaching holiday season is a great time to update your IT systems while everything's quiet.

In this week's Patch Monday, we gather some suggestions from Harold Melnick, who's Microsoft's senior product marketing manager for Unified communications; Del from open source consultancy Babel Com Australia; and independent IT consultant Kate Carruthers.

Stilgherrian also summarises the week's IT news — everything you would have read yourself if you weren't so busy.
