Want some more structured information on the next version of SharePoint?

How about the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Preview Site?  Complete with a demo and a product evaluation guide.  There is some marketing fluff (as expected) but hidden in there is some really cool information about new features. πŸ™‚  I encourage you to jump in, I did and the water is nice and warm.  http://www.microsoft.com/office/preview/servers/sharepointserver/highlights.mspx […]

Remember the post from Feb of this year on SQL 2000 vs 2005 performance test on SharePoint? I bit my tongue then but I am going to say my peace now since the article is bouncing around blog land. My biggest concern is that the article forgets an important scenario.  The most common one that […]
