As defined by Steve Ballmer at the Convergence conference Q&A session on March 14. He was answering a question something on the lines of “…is it correct to think of SharePoint as almost like an OS (operating system)”?

Steve Ballmer’s response:

“SharePoint is the definitive OS or platform for the middle tier.”

Ballmer’s definition of SharePoint Server

“SharePoint is just like Office; it’s a bunch of point products gathered together into a suite.”

What do you think of SharePoint? What comes to your mind, when you hear SharePoint?
