This article provides a comprehensive comparison of features present in WSS vs those in MOSS 2007. How we nail these features down? This is going to be an interesting question.

Let us install first WSS on our PC and visit this directory:

C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft Sharedweb server extensions12TEMPLATESFEATURES

What you see is the list of features that are supported by WSS. We wrote a batch file that lists all the directories to a text file. Thereafter, we installed MOSS and did the same activity and this comparison is the result of this exercise.
