Is there anyone that can share information about the upcoming Sharepoint
V2 ?

Answer #2    Answered By: Cody Hinton     Answered On: Sep 04

STS and SPS will be fully integrated, with SPS using SQL server as it's
Categories will be called Topics and be moderatable by specific users
and generally easier to manage.
More drag-and-drop for Web Parts for users (ie Personalisation) from a
Library of parts the admin provides.
More scalable, with Biztalk integration to make it work at an enterprise
level (I don't know much about Biztalk so I don't know how this'd work).
Better modular backup/restore, but with reliance on 3rd parties.
Roles will be extendable, better integration with Active Directory/NT
user accounts, so you can know who is online now etc and using the
.NET and VB studio integration.
Better reporting features.
Extended DDSC: web parts can communicate better.

How in the world is this going to be an upgradeable product? I mean
with all of the back end changes the question of upgrading an existing
installation scares me.....

Any word on that by chance?

Answer #4    Answered By: Clara Heath     Answered On: Sep 04

For those who are presently on SPS v1 they will have an option in the
upgrade. Thay can upgrade to SPS v2 with either SQL2K or a DocumentStore
as the back end. For those who are concerned about all the conversion,
the DocuStore may be the chosen option. In that case, there would be a
smooth transition. They would have the life of V2 to prepare for V3 when
the DocumentStore may or may not be around anymore.

No need to be scared.

As for BTS, it has a workflow capability that is far more scalable than
the SPS built-in one. If one chooses to go with the SQL2K backend, it
would be the preferred option. For the DocuStore backend, Exchange
Workflow Designer integrated into an Exchange workflow may be the
preferred option.

Interesting .. I would like to know how long it would take
to 'upgrade in place' the databases on the backend to SQL.

If that is a concern, you can certainly run SPS v1 now and use SQL2K as
your personailzation server for your web parts right now. Maintain all
of your personailization data on SQL just like back when DDRK 3 first
came out and digital dashboards were run on SQL. That would give you the
SPS v1 stuff you want now and make your migration to SPS v2 and SQL easy
down the road.

The only caveat would be that your customizations running with DDRK on
SQL2K would probably be best effort support from MS if there were
