Office Web Apps and SharePoint Services(Excel, Word, Powerpoint Services)

I always get queries from peers and clients on difference between SharePoint 2010 and Office Web Apps. They are completely different component. Office Products have tight integration with SharePoint using the Office Web Apps feature installed in SharePoint.

Note : You can run Office Webs Apps using Office Web Apps server even if you do not have SharePoint in your organization.
