comment Backup via SharePoint or backup via SQL Server?
One option missing in this list, which IMO is by far the best option, is third-party backup tools. There is a cost but it is well worth the cost because it lowers the management overhead and cost, and backup/recovery time span is much less.

comment How Can I Enable Editing for User Information AD Properties?
Sorry I didn't see the "no" :) I am guessing then the UPS application is not pulling all the AD information. Someone with UPS application expertise can answer that.

comment How Can I Enable Editing for User Information AD Properties?
When you manage user permissions using AD groups, individual user profiles are not expanded until that individual user makes a change in SP. You can verify this by using the steps above. If you still cannot edit the user profile information then you have some other issues.

Using SSRS you are not limited to using SQL, you can use other data sources, such as SharePoint List Data Extension, mentioned by @Russel.

Try the above steps. Pick a user (user X). On the top right corner. Log as user X. Edit something. Log back in with your credentials. Can you update the user X UP information.

comment Computer's Requirement Enough for Sharepoint 2010
I am using an external SSD with USB 2.0 interface. I am not noticing any latency issues. The performance is very good for my dev/evaluation needs. The bandwidth rate for USB 3.0 (if properly used, right cable) is higher than SATA interface (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_device_bit_rates#Peripheral). But, I agree with you that investing in SSD will give him more performance than investing on the connection interface.

comment SharePoint As Network Shared Drive: How To Get Users To Use SharePoint as SharePoint
Very nicely put! My experience is that if you force SP on the users, they will resist it or start complaining about it.

comment Names of different sharepoint release
No, MOSS 2007 product is not bundled with MS Office product. Just like how MOSS is build on top of WSS 3.0, SPS 2010 is build on top of SPF 2010. All the features in SPF are included in SPS. SPF is free. SPS is not free. SPS adds more capabilities to SharePoint, such as Enterprise Search, Social Data and User Profiles, Enterprise Content Management, Web Content Management, Analytics, Word Automation Services, Access Services, Visio Services, PerformancePoint Services, Excel Services, Dashboards, InfoPath Forms Services.

comment SharePoint Foundation 2010 installation fails in Windows Server 2008
@Thuan the documentation you are referring is saying that in-place upgrade is not supported in a SPS 2010 and SQL Server Express configuration, if you are upgrading from MOSS 2007. The TechNet library installation requirement article, david is referring to, clearly states that SPS 2010 and SQL Server Express in a stand-alone configuration is supported.

How were you exactly integrating ASP.NET application with SP? What resources were you consuming from SP? For example, were you reading documents from SP document libraries?

comment Will Sharepoint Sync User Profiles if only Domain Groups are Used?
It is easier to manage users as a group instead of individually.
