Microsoft has begin to move and has blasted off with the SharePoint 2010 sneak peek website – I can’t help but think the timing was strategic – right after the NZ SharePoint conference, before the US SharePoint conference coming up in October. If this had go up one week before the NZ SharePoint conference – there would have been many speakers ambushed with questions they might not know how to answer.
Anyway, the areas I’ll be paying extreme close attention to are:
- Love the ribbon!
- Love the cross browser support!
- Love the AJAX – though the video looks like there were still full screen refreshes
- Curious about Visio services
- Curious about Business Connectivity Services
- Like the SharePoint designer – wish they allow more admin control to turn off features so that it can be more accepted in the enterprise.
- Like new central admin
- Love SharePoint best practice analyzer!
- Love usage reporting and logging!
- Love the unattached content database recovery!
- Curious about VS.NET 2010 integration – I hope it’s heaps better than VSeWSS 1.3
- Love LINQ for SharePoint!
- Curious about Developer Dashboard
- Love client object model!
Anyway, lots of love for now – no hate yet.
