    Hi Christophe!

    I enjoy your blog and have now read this entry several times and have laughed out loud each time I read it. Your command of English, especially American English, astounds me as nobody else’s does (bad grammar, I know). And everywhere I go SharePoint seems to be a topic. It was a big topic at Quest and a big moneymaker for them by selling consulting services for SharePoint consulting. Seems that SharePoint is not an easy product to configure and administer. We could charge EUR 80 / hour for this. Damn expensive!

    Unfortunately, I have to say that SharePoint is not only expensive to configure and administer, but also locks a company, again, into the MS model. One of the biggest advantages of SharePoint is it’s integration with MS Office and MS Outlook. But if you’re an organization that isn’t 1000% tied into MS then there are several other CMSystems out there that provide decent functionality.

    Alas, it’s difficult to sell Joomba, WordPress, Typo3 or Drupal consulting. So your SharePoint strategy seems right on. Go for it, and lots of success!
