As a huge fan of Sharepoint I feel the RAM requirements of Sharepoint 2010  are a bit steep and this might hamper adoption (and thus consulting $$), at least for the next 12 months.

Development:

8 GB RAM for single server + (several for ) Visual studio 2010 are almost not possible on a good notebook, one has to:

  • Buy a top of range Notebook (8 GB RAM +)
  • Buy a small server with 16 GB +

Other issues:

  • For a group of developers a company needs to buy a decent server (with 32 GB or more RAM) for development
  • Virtualization will be not so easy with these system requirements

Production:

  • Some business might not like having to use 8 or more GB RAM for a single site/portal.
  • Hosting Sharepoint will be quite expensive
