Sharepoint 2007 & Microsoft.com : The Proof is in the pudding

You may have noticed that www.microsoft.com has been redesigned.

Here is a kicker from http://www.microsoft.com/about/mspreview/en/us/abouthomepage.mspx

Quote ...

"In the background we are beginning to migrate much of Microsoft.com to a new platform based on Microsoft Office SharePoint Services 2007."

Now, microsoft.com is one of the top 10, if not the top 5 sites in the world. If this isn't an endorsement on the capabilities of SharePoint 2007, I don't know what is.

Sound off but keep it civil:

Well, I guess this is better than the days when the large-traffic Microsoft sites had to run on non-Microsoft software because the MS stuff couldn't scale well enough...

I'm glad to see Microsoft is even dogfooding their external web presence -- I'm looking forward to seeing what they build with it.

What's

"Microsoft Office SharePoint Services 2007." ?

LOL Jan, I thought of the same thing. Maybe it's a hybrid between

Windows SharePoint Services and


Microsoft Office SharePoint Server

Huh?

I'm guessing it's an error, and they really meant MOSS.
