SharePoint’s New Name: MOSS

Before Office 2007, SharePoint was either referred to as SPS or WSS (Portal or Services, respectively). Unless, of course, I was the one talking. I always just call it SharePoint and let the context determine to which technology I'm referring. In case having two names wasn't confusing enough, M$ has some recommendations for how you should refer to SharePoint.

The formal name for the next version of SharePoint Portal Server 2003 is Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. You can drop Microsoft, but preferably not Office. If you insist on using an acronym, MOSS 2007 or MOSS are acceptable. I think I'll stick with SharePoint.
