Commerce Server Starter Site

The Commerce Server team has finally released a production ready starter site. And the site seems to sell it as just that - a starter site. From what I've seen in the past (and the way it seems to come across to customers) the Retail site was pegged as an "out of the box" solution. Anyone with any experience with Commerce Server knows that there's no such thing as "out of the box." But this looks like a good move in that direction.

I think Mark Harrison's blog was the first place I saw this, as well as a post about Commerce Server 2006, which of course will use version 2.0 of the .NET Framework, SQL Server 2005, and provide 64-bit support. You'll have to read through the preview to see what the real new features are. Hint: there's a lot in there about integrating and sharing data with other systems.
