I am a complete newbie when it comes to BuddyPress

Hello,

I am a complete newbie when it comes to BuddyPress and wanted to ask a couple of questions about BP in reference to WPMU…

As with WPMU a person or company can signup to our site and redirect their domain name using the plugins you supply to us to have their visitors locate them by their site address URL…

Is this possible in BuddyPress?

I have been reading some info on BP and also wanted to know if BP was essentially the same as WPMU in that a person or company can still also post articles and blogs in BP but what really sets BP apart from WPMU is the plugins associated with it…

Thanks for your help

Any Detailed info you might have on the pros and cons or WPMU and BP would be helpful as I am starting to get my head around WPMU and can use this to relate to BP.

A comparison chart on the two would be wonderful…
