Out of Date[edit]

This article has fallen out of date with Windows SharePoint Foundation 2010 and needs to be updated.

I would go so far as to say this article is completely wrong. I have suggested that it is rolled into the Microsoft SharePoint article for now, although I do not think it needs to be entirely deleted. --Alirobe (talk) 09:35, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
At least, the used names "WSS 2" etc. should be renamed to the appropriate ones with MSF, or how they are called after the rename. Sae1962 (talk) 11:45, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Comparison between Windows Sharepoint Services and Wiki[edit]

Basically, Wikis are naturally geared towards placing content directly on pages (like most people would expect a web site to do), whereas Sharepoint is naturally geared to placing documents in folders. It's not that either can't do much that the other can do, it's a question of how most people end up using 10:23, 8 August 2005 (UTC)

Actually, since Wiki Sites have been listed as a feature in SharePoint v3, I think this whole discussion is moot. However, while we're on the subject, I think the correct term would be "Wiki Site", since Wiki is technically an adjective, from Hawaiian, meaning "quick". (Of course, we'll probably have to ask Ward Cunningham himself for the correct usage of the word.
By the same token, all the press releases (if they can be called that) have referred to the feature as "wikis". I'm changing it to the grammar neutral "weblog and wiki support" for now, unless someone objects and changes it back (hopefully with a reasonable explanation).Viltris 05:55, 4 December 2005
