I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Back in ASP.NET 1.1, there was only one option--the Web Application model, with a project file.  When ASP.NET 2.0 came out, it initially only had one option--the Web Site model without a project file.  That meant that every file that was in the folder was part of the web site.  This also meant that you couldn't have multiple web sites, like you could with 1.1.  So many developers complained, that Microsoft re-added the Web Application model.
