  1. What is the difference between features and capabilities?


    Is there a clear definition of package, feature and capabilities?

    My understanding is;


    Packages are file or group of files which is used to install a software App, driver?, feature, services, patches, update, on demand feature, anymore? into the OS.



    Features are Microsoft OS software which provide a service or a set of services. A feature or a groups of feature can be grouped to provide a server role like DHCP, DNS, WDS, IIS.. etc..


    Extracted from MS website “Capabilities are a Windows package type allows you to request services like .NET or languages without specifying the version.


    I kind of lost here.. are Capabilities a subset of features?



    From “DISM /get-capabilities”, the list mainly contain languages, one "Tools.Graphics.DirectX" and NetFX3 .Net Frame work 3.x


    Thanks!

    :)
