While the official launch date of SharePoint 2010
is still yet to be announced (no change to "sometime in first six months of this year" ), there is quite a bit of beta use going on. Learned from SharePoint Experts
that "Microsoft and the United States Olympic Committee have teamed up to bring the Winter Games content and information to reporters through a redesigned press portal powered by SharePoint 2010". This got me to look around a bit, wondering about SharePoint adoption ... which brought me to Joel's SharePoint
Land, where his most recent post (link below) asks the question: " Should I stay with the proven SharePoint Server 2007 either in a green field deployment or even with the new project the business is asking me to deploy, or do I go with SharePoint 2010 and take whatever comes with that good and bad, the reward with the risk." (spoler alert: it depends!) Joel kind of runs through his argument, promising to get a little deeper at a later date ... but it's a worthwhile to post to check as it presents simply and directly the differences between the two offerings.
Hat tip to Joel's SharePoint Land.
