According to the sales and marketing executive who took over design of our SharePoint portal and who was our account executive selling product analysis services to Microsoft, her contacts in the Microsoft Collaboration group told her that no one who uses

She also tells me that we don't need search since she knows where everything is in the folders she set up on our MOSS site (she uses document libraries as a file system with folders for different needs within each library).
She also tells me that we don't need sites for new projects, rather we should set up a new page, add in default lists and libraries and adding a link to the page in the navigation bar to the project site. If content needs to be secured for specific user
