FitzBlog : Will Windows SharePoint Services Work With SQL Server 2005?

FitzBlog : Will Windows SharePoint Services Work With SQL Server 2005?: "The next releases of SPS and WSS will both work with either SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2000. We're not going to make you upgrade everything in your server room. That'd be mean. We're not mean. Well, maybe a little: there may be a few features in SPS, I believe, that will only activate if you have access to a copy of SQL Server 2005. But that'd be about it. SQL Server 2005 is great, and you should upgrade to it, but we won't force you to do it against your will."

SharePoint Questionnaire

SharePoint Questionnaire: "The following is a list of questions we ask prospective SharePoint site owners in order to start requirements gathering and determining which product implementation will best suit their needs. The questions help determine if the user needs a portal, a WSS site, or a combination of the two. The questionnaire is preluded by a brief description of SPS and WSS describing key differences in purpose. For the most part these questions are general, but some have undertones to our unique SharePoint environment. We have two versions of our questionnaire, one is a protected formatted form in Word that is sent to the prospective site owner, the other is an answer guide to assist evaluating the questionnaire responses. The blue text below with each question represents the answer guide response to that question. "
