Yesterday at the Vertical Industry and Role Based Templates for SharePoint TechEd breakout session, Alex Paytuvi from Quilogy shared that at the end of the summer 30 free templates will be available for download from the Microsoft site for WSS.
Basically these templates provide a customized WSS site for various business needs such as HR recruiting, lightweight project management, employee activities and competitive intelligence. Instead of creating a run of the mill WSS site each time and customizing it to fit your user group needs, these templates provide common requirements for each type of template right from site creation… so no creating the same document libraries and lists over and over. They have also customized the templates in FrontPage so they are definitely sexier looking than the default WSS look and feel.
Very cool stuff!
