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.
