I am listening Steve Balmer from Microsoft along with Novell in a press conference in San Francisco. The announcement implies that the two operating systems, Windows and Suse Linux will be able to coexist in customer environments thorough new interoperability that will be provided by both vendors. This includes work they are doing for virtualization.
Whoa! Steve Balmer saying that “Microsoft will be working on interoperability between Windows and Linux”
Sounds like they will be building a Virtual Server that will run on Linux so that Windows applications can run on a Linux box.
Another piece that is important for BetterECM is building translators for documents between Open Document and the Windows Open XML format so that customers will have transparent interoperability for documents.
Hmmm…Does this mean there could be a way for customers to have an integrated SharePoint and Alfresco solution within their Windows and Linux environment?
Update: Here is the link to the Microsoft announcement.
Finally after over three years! Microsoft has announced Office 2007 (including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007), Vista, and Exchange 2007 will launch November 30th at an event in New York City.
According to an InfoWorld article, Microsoft Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Steve Ballmer will be on hand for the event according to an email invitation sent out today. The event will be held at the Nasdaq Stock Market in midtown Manhattan.

Joel Oleson just posted a great set of resources over at the Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies Team Blog which lists Webcasts, other Blog posts, presentations, and white papers and other content which cover different security topics on Office SharePoint Server and WSS v3. I am a regular reader of Joel’s Blog and he is always a good source of SharePoint information. The following is the link to the post.
