SharePoint and Office 2010 Official Launch-- May 12, 2010

Just wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow, May 12th, is the official launch date of SharePoint/Office 2010. There is going to be an online launch event at www.the2010event.com. If you want to check it out.

I know that a lot of us actually downloaded the release to manufacturer copy of SharePoint Foundation around April 22th, but for the rest of the world (that doesn't have TechNet or MSDN), this will be the day they can run out and buy SharePoint server or Office 2010 for the first time.

This date is also significant because it is the date that a whole lot of data about SharePoint should start trickling out of Microsoft, like reporting services for SharePoint Foundation (at least, that's what I am hoping).

Be sure to check out the online launch event, and try to catch the live, in-person launch events in your area. I am sure they are going to have insider info that may not be available online or in book form yet.
