SharePoint Server 2010 Content Types

What are content types in SP Server 2010 ?

"A content type is a reusable collection of metadata (columns), workflow, behavior, and other settings for a category of items or documents in a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 list or document library. Content types enable you to manage the settings for a category of information in a centralized, reusable way." (MSDN Technical Library)

The first word of that eloquently stated definition from MSDN is the most important word to keep in mind when talking about content types. They are reusabble. They can be reused in all of the lists and libraries of a SharePoint Site Collection along with the Site Collections's sub sites.
