In the post yesterday SharePoint Foundation OOTB web Parts I said that I would cover the web parts available with SharePoint Server 2010 for a comparison of the two versions. With the server version there are 11 categories but in SharePoint Foundation there are only 5 which is very understandable when you compare a free version to a fully featured server application that can support millions of users. This list of web parts is based on the enterprise edition the next time I do a standard install I will also list those.
