Naming Conventions in SharePoint 2010

One of the small.. change that I like of SharePoint 2010 is the naming convention that really clarifies things. One is WSS changed to SharePoint Foundation. I knew some people  though that SharePoint, MOSS and WSS where totally different things. Now Microsoft has removed “MOSS” – although I have heard some people say MOSS 2010, and named to SharePoint server and SharePoint Foundation. Sweet, clear and unambiguous.

Yet another improvement was the so called “SSO” in SharePoint 2007. People used to think that SharePoint provided the SSO engine that could enable them to have seamless browsing experience between SharePoint and SAP :). Thankfully it’s named to Secure Store in 2010, so that misconception does not arise, freeing us from discussions with customers as to why they would have to purchase a separate SSO solution even they got SharePoint which has SSO as a feature.
