More Info
									   -   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...)
      Task management and calendars on group level
      Central notification management (problems, complaints, help desk...)
      Collecting information/surveys via question forms
      Extended search engine within each site
      Workflow (examples: expense reports, holiday administration...)
      Digital dashboards, with or without score carding

MOSS capabilities
 MOSS provides extra features as compared with WSS

      Consolidation of all the team sites within the organization
      Enterprise search : search through different sources within the organization with
       one interface (portals, mail, ERP, CRM ...)
      Central personnel data base with extended search capabilities, linked (or not) to
       internal personnel management.
      Business Data Catalog (BDC): default link to external systems (e.g. CRM/ERP)
      Report Center : central management of all reports and data connections.
      Excel Services : provides Excel features in the web browser.
      Creation of web-based e-Forms, full web-browser access.

* Two additional features are installed when you upgrade from MOSS 2007 Beta 2 to
MOSS Beta 2 Technical Refresh: PublishingB2TRHop2SiteFilesUpgrade &
PublishingB2TRSiteFilesUpgrade. 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.
