Drupal -VS- SharePoint

This was a classic tale of David and Goliath. Our little Drupal standing toe to toe with the might SharePoint. We sized up each of SharePoint's features and targeted them with our Drupal guided missiles. As we launched one by one at SharePoint's grand feature set and we saw success after success. Until one day they had all be concurred. We scraped the remains of Goliath and now have a beautiful new republic of CCK, Views, Groups, and CONTENT galore.

We will demonstrate a feature for feature comparison of what SharePoint is and what Drupal can be.

Intended audience: 

Audience familiar with core Drupal concepts as well as exposure to SharePoint. Understanding of CCK, Views, Modules, Features, and other advanced Drupal topics a plus.
