What is the difference between a web application pool and a service application pool? And does the 10 app pool limit (MSFT supported limit) include just web application pools, or web app pools + service app pools? (I understand the reasons for the 10 limit.)
If the 10 limit means web app pools + service app pools = 10 then we (us configurers) are severely restricted as to how many app pools we can create for the various service applications. Because, SP2010's 5 app pools out of the gate (http://www.harbar.net/archive/2009/12/04/more-on-sharepoint-2010-application-pools.aspx)
+ 2 for Intranet and My Site web apps = 7 before we even create our first service application.
