SharePoint newbie questions

  Asked By: Karen    Date: Feb 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1015

I would like to get answers on the
following questions. Bear with me if these questions have been asked
before in this group.
1) Windows SharePoint Service(WSS) comes with Windows 2003 server,
what can you do with WSS alone? Can I create an intranet with WSS and
Visual Studio.Net without buying SPS?
2) What I can do with SPS but cannot do with WSS ? Essentially, what
do I get with buying SPS?
3) If I only need to create a project wiki that all team members can
have a say on it, do I need to buy SPS?
4) If I only need to enable my team members to create their only
weblogs on our intranet, do I need to buy SPS? Can I get by with WSS?
My team are pretty proficient on Visual Studio and .Net programming.

I would be leery to recommend WSS for an Intranet, given that
Intranets usually have large audiences and static content. It really
comes down to your site requirements. WSS is a collaboration tool for
small groups of people.


2) What I can do with SPS but cannot do with WSS ? Essentially, what
do I get with buying SPS?

Go check out some resources on this topic, lots of things have been
written:

3) If I only need to create a project wiki that all team members can
have a say on it, do I need to buy SPS?

No, collaboration is WSS's strength.


4) If I only need to enable my team members to create their only
weblogs on our intranet, do I need to buy SPS? Can I get by with WSS?

Yes you can get by with WSS. You can create a site collection and
each user can have their own WSS site.
