Bye Bye Internet Explorer 6

Today the SharePoint Team has announced that IE6 will no longer be supported in SharePoint 2010! A bit about IE6’s bad reputation: IE6 has always been the most hated piece of software around. It has lots of bugs, security issues, instability issues, doesn’t fully support modern web standards and the list goes on. There was even some campaigns out there trying to get people not to use IE6 (stopIE6, bringDownIE6). Despite all of the above IE6 still enjoys a fair market share even today when there are already 2 newer versions of it....

A glimpse into SharePoint 2010 by looking at SP2

SharePoint SP2 is here, and with it, the pre upgrade checker. This is a tool that scans your SharePoint farm, and produce a report with all the issues that might be problematic when upgrading to SharePoint 2010\WSS4. This is very interesting..

Well, it was mainly informative stuff.. just to remind you what’s in your farm. But still, there were a few points...
