I am certifiable...
Yesterday I took my 70-630 MCTS exam in Configuring and Administrating Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

First Screenshots of SharePoint 2010
It's not much to get excited over, but Lee Richardson on his Rapid Application Development blog has posted the first screenshots of SharePoint 2010. Here: They have been captured from the recent Tech-Ed 09 session videos, and quite clearly show in-line AJAX editing of list data. The big red button on the first screen indicates this is the alpha version of the product which a Microsoft contact recently told me had been floating around internally for some time now.
