SharePoint 2010 Managed Metadata - In Depth Look into the Taxonomy Parts

In the last year I've done a lot of research around how Microsoft implemented metadata, specifically taxonomies and terms, in SharePoint 2010. This research has lived in a OneNote file for a long time but finally I've started to pull it together and put it into something a bit more cohesive and something easier to comprehend and use as a reference. In this post I'm going to document and talk about all the parts that you'll find (and some you might not find) in SharePoint 2010 that allow Microsoft to implement the taxonomy capabilities throughout the product. The other posts in this series are as follows (I'll update this list as they are published): SharePoint 2010 Managed Metadata - About the series... SharePoint 2010 Managed Metadata - What is it?
