- Windows SharePoint Services (WSS or SPS) is a portal-based platform for creating, managing and sharing documents and Web services on an intranet. WSS is a free download included with every Windows Server 2003 license and is considered to be part of the Office 2003 productivity suite. WSS is often confused with Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS), a stand-alone server product with enhanced features, including enterprise content management and enterprise search. What is WSS ? What is MOSS ? Microsoft Sharepoint is available in 2 versions : WSS 3.0 (Windows Sharepoint Services): this Windows 2003 server add-on is available as a free download from the Microsoft website MOSS 2007 (Microsoft Office System Server) is developed on the basis of WSS, and provides extra features. MOSS is subject to licensing. WSS capabilities WSS provides a solid base to set up one or more intranet sites. The main WSS features are: Unlimited number of team sites or portals Document management with collaboration and sharing capabilities (Check- in/Check-out, workflow, meta-data, 'warn me', discussions...)

These two Features, as their names imply, are used to upgrade some of the publishing files from Beta 2 to Beta 2 Technical Refresh. This also explains why you may have experienced some problems with your existing Publishing sites created in Beta 2 after upgrading to Beta 2 Technical Refresh, as outlined in this post. Because they are upgrade Features, and not likely to be present in the RTM release of MOSS 2007, I am not including them in the count.
