Microsoft The Microsoft empire is built upon two pillars: the Windows operating system, and Microsoft Office. Windows 7 made its way unto the scene last year, and now it's time to work on the other pillar. Today, Microsoft officially launched Microsoft Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. Regular customers will be able to purchase the new versions next month, starting at 119 USD.

As a sharepoint user I can tell you to stop smoking crack.


As a former sharepoint user, I can tell you to take your own advice.

For starters, you don't even know what technology you're using. SharePoint, LiveLink, etc. are CMS systems - Content Management Systems - not ORM (Object Relational Mapping, or Operational Risk Management - though they sure do insert a lot of operational risk that needs to be managed).

CMS is basically a glorified RCS (Revision Control System), and one that makes itself known typically through website interfaces.

Now that we got the discussion on the right technology, we can approach your "present a better option".

ANY RCS does a better job than LiveLink and SharePoint at revision and content control. LiveLink and SharePoint make their case primarily on user interfaces - as they target them at PHB users.

Sadly, most RCS system's don't have user interfaces that target the PHB's in this world. But that doesn't mean they're not there as at least Subversion has one such interface - WebDAV - that can be used.

SVN+WebDAV. You get all the same features/benefits, and superior version control. You also don't need specialized tools as you can mount WebDAV sites as a drive in Windows and OS's.
