And in other news-- SharePoint public beta has, well, gone public...

In a somewhat anticlimactic state of affairs, after all the hoopla of the public beta being released to TechNet/MSDN customers first, Microsoft sent out the email invitation to download the new beta to the many, many (thousands and thousands of?) people who signed up for the beta a while ago.

So congratulations, those of you who applied to be in the SharePoint public beta, the bits are available for download. And also, congrats because you are going to get to play with the new beta without spending the money a subscription to TechNet/MSDN would have cost you.

That appeals to the frugal admin in me.

(unfortunately, I'd already renewed my TechNet subscription...)

Welcome to the beta adventure! I spend a lot of time doing beta testing, and it's nice to know, at least this time, I am not alone. : )

In the coming months I will be writing about things and stuff concerning SharePoint Foundation 2010. Feel free to visit and even suggest things that you've found that might need a closer look.
