Tag and taxonomy management

Hi,

Trying to decide whether Alfresco is what we need within our organisation… Comparing its features to Sharepoint. One in particular:

"top-down taxonomy and bottoms-up social tagging"

I.e. having a (hierarchical) taxonomy which is pre-determined, and making it very easy to classify content (documents) according to this (Sharepoint has the type-ahead feature with dropdown with alternatives, which seems to me best-in-class).
And add to this the ability to add own tags (if they can be re-used within a certain scope in the system, as they seem to be able to in Sharepoint, the better) to content.

I would love a tutorial on how to, if not accomplish this then at least come as close to as possible, in Alfresco.

(I'm pretty confused by the 'categories'>'tags' in Alfresco Explorer and the 'tags' in Share, and their respective use, which I have not been able to reconcile…)

Thanks!!
