Lync that OCS

Repackaging a slew of solutions targeted at the UC market with a new name doesn’t really inspire  too much confidence.  So what features of the new Lync UC solution are an improvement over those that OCS delivered ?  Also the  intention of pricing it CAL based standard $31 (which I doubt anyone would buy ) over enterprise cost $107 seems to be on the low end.    The biggest advantage Microsoft possesses over its competition is that it rules the data desktop.  Now if I were an IT manager,  I would prefer buying the Lync as well as one total solution with the default Office suite ( be it upgrade or a brand new install ).   But where do I go for the hardware components – I still need to buy the phones et al.   A complete desktop UC solution ( like the focus of Skype ) maybe the future ( of course enterprise smart phones may change that all ).
