Difference between SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint server 2010

Hi All,

I just wanted to share a little information on SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint server 2010. Many people are confused about these two terms and do not know the difference between these two products.

Well let me tell you the basic difference between these two. Well actually we all know the basic difference between these two.

SharePoint Foundation 2010 is the other name of WSS 3.0. When I say other name, means this product is very similar to WSS 3.0 it is free downloadable and can be used in Server 2008 or Windows 7. It has also less number of features than SharePoint server 2010.

So it is the same story that what SharePoint server 2007 has is WSS 3.0 does not have. WSS 3.0 has less functionality and free as well and SharePoint 2007 has much more advanced features but a paid product.

Similar, SharePoint Foundation 2010 is a free download and has less feature than SharePoint Server 2010 which cost license and has much more advanced features like BCS, my site, enhanced BI, excel services and much more.
