Looks like we are starting to ramp up on the documentation! In my feed of the Microsoft Download Center, I noticed that we just posted results of internal testing on SharePoint 2010 performance. This should be very helpful for those who are looking for some reference test results as to how SharePoint 2010 works in different configurations and with different services enabled.
These white papers describe the performance and capacity impact of specific feature sets included in SharePoint Server 2010. These white papers include information about the performance and capacity characteristics of the feature and how it was tested by Microsoft, including:

And now for a random graph from one of the reports
Every time I setup a new SharePoint 2010 portal, I hit the same problem when I go to create sub-sites… I have no templates! Where are my options for creating a Document Center, Search Center, Record Center, or Blog?
Fortunately, the fix is very simple. The other templates are just not enabled by default. I suppose it helps reign in users from going buck-wild on a brand new portal, but annoying for a power user like me (that wants to go buck-wild). Just click on Site Actions –> Site Settings, and then “Page layouts and site templates”.
On the resulting screen, you can add additional templates to the right, or just click the radio button that says “Subsites can use any site template”
Voila! Now you can create sub-sites based off of any template you want.
