DOWNLOAD: Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 for Windows Server 2003

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 is now available to users of Windows Server 2003.  A description of the technology is available at the product web site at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/windowsserver/sharepoint/techinfo/overview.mspx but here’s a quick summary of what I think is pretty cool about it:

  • Templates for implementing blogs (also known as weblogs) and wikis (Web sites that can be quickly edited by team members—no special technical knowledge required)
  • Offline synchronization through Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 that users can use to manage document libraries, lists, calendars, contacts, tasks, and discussion boards even offline, and to synchronize changes when reconnected to the network
  • Ability to build workflows on the Windows SharePoint Services platform that address specific business processes or sets of tasks
  • Document storage, recycle bin item retrieval, and version-control features built-in
  • Enable security to be set as deep down as the item level

NOTE:  I can’t stress bullet #2 enough:  The ability to do offline synchronization of document libraries between a laptop user and the Sharepoint Service is absolutely phenomenal.  Have you ever received an email with a pointer to a document stored on a server, then realized that you couldn’t get the document you needed because you’re on an airplane?  If the resource was a common storage location like a Sharepoint service that you had synching with your machine, you’d have the document with you to peruse or edit, and be able to rely on the fact that the changes you made would be synched once you were back on line.

You can download Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 for standard (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions.
