SharePoint Server 2010 needs 64-bit SQL Server

by Shijaz Abdulla on 14.05.2009 at 15:51

64 bitSharePoint Server 2010 will require a 64-bit edition of SQL Server – more specifically either SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 running on Windows Server 2008.

SharePoint Server 2010 will not support Internet Explorer 6. Users will have to use Internet Explorer 7 or above. However, non-Microsoft  browsers such as FireFox 3.x (on Windows & non-Windows platform) and Safari 3.x (on non-Windows platform) will be supported.

The Office 2010 beta will be available in July, but SharePoint Server 2010 beta will not be made available at that time.

Enterprise Search in Office 2010 has been improved, with Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Fast Search & Transfer.

This information was revealed during the TechEd conference.
