    Sharepoint 2010?

    Anyone know anything about Sharepoint 2010? I can't find much about it on the internet and its supposed to be released at the end of this year apparently.

    Currently using Sharepoint 2003 and moodle for our intranet/vle and its working great but I would like to move to the latest software at some point.

    When I can something - I will :-D Was hoping to do something about it at the edugeek conference but not allowed to :-(

    All I can say is that its called SharePoint 2010 and its 64bit only.

    well, we've 8 offices, and our home grown intranet has a local copy of each server and file system for each.

    Sharepoint can't do it...

    Cool, guess I'm a bit early for it then I'm hoping to set up a dedicated server with a SSD drive. It would be great if the new version of sharepoint could span different drives.

    Shame its 64bit only though, I don't see the advantages of this from a single server perspective.

    Have you tried the difference between a 32bit and 64bit install - its massively different in speed.

    Considering you'll be lucky to find a 32bit CPU in a new server now, I can't see your complaint? All Opterons and Xeons are 64bit. And if you're still running a 32bit CPU'd server at the end of this year, I'd be questioning why!

    Seems like an odd way to use sharepoint! Surely a central install available from everywhere is more suited?

    Well if that's true then I welcome it with open arms

    But from my experience of exchange 2003 on a 32bit server and exchange 2007 of a 64bit, the 2003 variant ran much faster and was more reliable. I eventually downgraded to exchange 2003 and have not had a problem since. Probably due to it being a more mature product I guess.

    thats my point - thats the way sharepoint will want to be used.

    A central location accessible from anywhere would be nice - but the speeds you get from hong kong to london make it...interesting

    Ah, geographical distribution... How about this: Supported global solutions for Office SharePoint Server

    Lots of information there.

    I know it can be done, as that'd be a rather large problem if it couldn't!

    Cheers for the info - the rollout was started before I joined, so planning a redesign/ integration with our existing system at some point....

    I guess the only thing we know is its called Sharepoint 2010. 64bit is obvious. Powershell and changes to lists just rumours. Will it be different and will it ship in 2010? The fact that there are no major leaks or speculation means one of 2 things its either not as developed as they had hoped or the NDA's are working. I suspect the former.

    I guess the 2003 users will upgrade but will those on 2007 bother?
