Limitation is such a dirty word. Here's what AIMS has *in addition* to MGOS

 - 100% native DWG support through FDO. No more of that <publish to DWF> or
export DWG geometries nonsense.
 - A solid raster FDO provider (supports your ECW and MrSID among others)
 - Autodesk's own Oracle FDO provider. MGOS uses the King.Oracle FDO
provider. I can't say whether one is better than the other
 - A mobile viewer extension (though you can easily roll your own with pure
 - That Topobase thing

Both AIMS and MGOS support SQL Server 2008 through the same FDO provider. 

Raster support in MGOS is so-so and will remain that way until users decide
that this solvable problem is something worth funding for

If you want ECW support in MGOS will probably have to swap gdal19.dll in the
MGOS install with one that has ECW support (this is how it was done for 2.2,
totally untested for 2.4).
