I wanted to mention a couple of links with good information on SharePoint 2010. The first one is the official Microsoft page: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/2010/Sneak_Peek/Pages/default.aspx. It includes a nice video overview, plus videos targeted at IT pros and developers. You may also find the FAQ on the site useful.
CMS Wire published an article outlining some of the new features unveiled at the Worldwide Partner Conference: http://www.cmswire.com/cms/enterprise-20/sharepoint-2010-a-business-collaboration-platform-005042.php. SharePoint 2010 will also be the primary focus of the SharePoint Conference in October.
I am also excited to be a part of the beta program for Microsoft Office 2010. It is nice to have an early look at the next release of SharePoint and the integration with all of the other Office products. I will definitely blog more about the new features when I am at liberty to do so.
