Microsoft will ship the new SharePoint 2010 along with Office 2010 in the first half of next year (Beta – late 2009).
There has been a few questions about the name of SharePoint 2010.
Basically, we presently have three SharePoint server versions:
1. Windows SharePoint Services
2. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Standard
3. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise
From now onwards it will be just Microsoft SharePoint 2010 (without the “office”).
