According to TheRegister, Microsoft have released a Content Management System.

As with many Microsoft products, this isn't a product of intensive development in Redmond - they went out and bought NCompass who had a CMS called Resolution. The big news is that they've dropped the price from Resolution's per server list price of $79,000 to $39,901.

Unsurprisingly, it only runs on Win2k (Resolution also ran on NT4).

Now while this won't actually be a major competitor to the likes of Vignette and Broadvision (Resolution wasn't either), it may herald a difficult time for lower cost CMSs (particularly in MS hosted environments) such as Mediasurface.
