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.

I have compared several FOS alternatives before using SharePoint, they simply suck to the bone. Even one of them has a pro version that cost much more than MOS.

I have used several commercial alternatives and they suck even more compared to Sharepoint. Most of them can do basic stuff quite good, but try get them work on enviroment with 10k people, try customise them and you quickly go straight to hell.

Typical problem with Sharepoint is that companies have no clue what they actually want and then they just put one up. Management:"We want Sharepoint!" Techguy:"Okey I installed it on server behind Steves porn magazines." This is so common scene that it explains why so many has bad experience on Sharepoint. It's not something you simply installl and start use. Look Ferrari site and you see something nice done with Sharepoint.
