We’ve Seen STS, WSS, MOSS … Now Pick the New SharePoint Abbreviations!

OK, Bamboo Nation, time to put those creative thinking caps on!

It's been rather entertaining watching the evolution of SharePoint over the years, but even more entertaining has been watching the name changes, especially given what a mouthful they've become!  Luckily, snazzy abbreviations for each SharePoint instance were also introduced to save us all some valuable keystrokes.  Here is a rundown of each version of SharePoint and its associated abbreviation:

SharePoint Version Abbreviation
SharePoint Team Services STS
Windows SharePoint Servces v2.0 WSSv2
SharePoint Portal Server 2003 SPS 2003
Windows SharePoint Servces v3.0 WSSv3
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 MOSS 2007
Microsoft Windows SharePoint Foundation 2010 ?
Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPS 2003 was good, but man, MOSS 2007 was such a great abbreviation!  It just rolled off the toungue so nicely Big Smile  So here is where you come in…

What are the snazzy, roll-off-the-tongue, sexy abbreviations for SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010?

Here are a few of my thoughts –

SharePoint Foundation 2010:

  • Foundation 2010 (still a mouthful)
  • SPF 2010 (that's one powerful sunblock!)
  • SP 2010

SharePoint Server 2010:

  • SPS 2010 (eh, reminds me of SPS 2003 and this is LEAGUES beyond that release)
