Todd Bleeker has a great write up on a common question anyone working with SharePoint gets. What’s the difference between an SPS/WSS site.
Teaser from Todds blog:
How is a “portal site” different from a “WSS site” different from a “site” in a SharePoint portal different from a Web different from a Subweb different from an Area? And by the way, what’s a Topic?
Definately a recommended read especially for anyone a little confused on the differences so off you go!
