A SharePoint Repair

Recently, we told you about an unpatched SharePoint 2007 SP2 problem. The Microsoft patch army took the field and there's now a fix.

Here's what I find odd about SharePoint. The product is presumably hot; I believe Microsoft has sold over 100 million licenses and cool third parties are coming out of the woodwork. But I've asked several times how you use SharePoint and what you like or don't like, and while I got 40 e-mails about Robert Clary from "Hogan's Heroes," I don't think I've gotten any on SharePoint.

Is SharePoint the big deal I think it is, or am I a victim of Microsoft's cruelly efficient marketing machine? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
