Gates explains it all

Bill Gates opened the first ever SharePoint conference this week. He emphasized that Microsoft is moving towards a SharePoint centric view of the world. He also talked about how SQL Server will eventually become "the native underlying platform for SharePoint, Exchange, meta-directory and all Microsoft server applications with data storage needs."

The article also reiterates the fact that Microsoft Content Management Server will be killed off with the advent of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Sad but true.

Microsoft also is killing Content Management Server and folding its capabilities into SharePoint, which will be pitched to corporate users as a multitask, identity-enabled engine to host collaborative sites not just for the intranet but for the extranet and Internet as well.

I've known this day was coming, but it hurts to think about it. *sob*
