MOSS no more…

The announcement by Microsoft for the naming conventions of the Series “14” Server products marked the end of our beloved MOSS acronym! The Office buzz world is not a part of SharePoint’s name anymore , since it will now be called Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010.

This does not mean that Office integration will be left out, it just means that Microsoft decided that the “Office” brand name will now be only related to client side products (a wise decision that will reduce some of the confusion that was caused by the “Office Servers” product line). The beta or a partner preview will be available in the last quarter or 2009 but no features were confirmed. So all conversation was about the new acronym (no serious Microsoft Product has been left without an acronym for a long time). MS is out of the question, MSS is taken by Microsoft Search Server and as Thomas Rizzo wrote on his blog  (“SharePoint is SharePoint is SharePoint”) we are left with no acronym.

I have a real hard time accepting this, so what about …. MSPS ?

SharePoint is SharePoint is…
