WA Questionnaire - MS Sharepoint 2010

I received a typical simple questionnaire from WebAssist last week and I completed it as I normally do as best I could. It's not a hardship and I am in full support of doing them when ever they are sent out.

At that moment in time I was exploring development using PHP/MySQL on a Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 platform. I wasn't thinking about the possibility of merging my WebAssist assets with this new platform...however...I'm very impressed with the potential of what is possible using a Sharepoint platform, but I want to additionally utilize my PHP/MySQL assets on this platform.

There are some serious obstacles at this time with connecting to MySQL, but I suspect that these issues will be resolved soon.

I'd like to see some discussion on this topic please.

Is this something that WA would be willing to explore development of new products to support and expand on?

Ok... Well this post got no response, so let's add two more platforms for possible discussion...

I haven't used the SharePoint stuff at all so I am certainly not well versed there. In fact, the last time I used any Micorosft based servers, I had such a bad time with them that I have been on Linux ever since. Not to say I wouldn't try them again if I was assured that they were stable.

As far as WordPress and Joomla go, I have used them both. A lot of times, though, they have limitations and that's why I prefer WebAssist tools to help me build exactly what the clients wants rather than trying to apply work-arounds to get WordPress or Joomla to work. I think both of them, though, are great if you are just managing straight forward content or blogs. But the problem I always run into with clients is that they have specifics that they need the site to cover and won't work with just a typical content management system.

I do, however, really like some of the plugins in WordPress. There seems to be more and more stuff available all the time.

One issue I have seen with Joomla is that it can be crashed with a large number of users in the database.

I think the platform that I really find intriguing is Drupal. It looks like with some good customization, that Drupal could really be customized to the extreme and made to fit with some more specific needs.
