SharePoint 2010 features that have been qualified and are supported:
- UI: SharePoint 2010 Web UI (that is the new Ribbon-Style interface).
- Browser Support: SharePoint 2010 introduces support for Firefox and Safari browsers and these will be supported through Rewrite based Access.
- Mozilla Firefox features, which use the Microsoft Office 2010 plug-in, will not be supported. For example, New Document, DataGrid, and so on will not be supported.
- On Firefox and Safari, office documents residing in SharePoint 2010 cannot be opened or edited from within the Microsoft Office client, when PCS core access is used. This is due to the Microsoft Office client being unable to access the browser’s cookie store, which is needed for successful authentication through the PCS. However in PCS version 7.2 and above, opening/editing documents will be supported via the Office Web Apps functionality.
- Enhanced Collaborative Features, User Profiles, MySites (without SilverLight), Social Feedback, and Organization.
- Content: Large Lists and libraries, Enterprise Metadata, Document sets, Web Publishing including Digital Asset Management, Governance, and Records management.
- Search: Interactive search experience, relevance, and people search.
- Administration: Supports all web based administration activities.

- SilverLight: SilverLight is not supported with the Web/Rewrite mechanism in OS version 7.1. However, the rewrite engine will disable the silverlight content and send the rest of the page's content to end users. Support for SilverLight content, which is embedded in SharePoint 2010 pages, is currently targeted for OS version 7.2.
