Sections vs Categories

I am running vB Suite 4.2.3. For life of me, I cannot figure out why I would choose categories over sections.

What do categories give me that sections do not.

1) I can sort each section various ways, I cannot sort categories at all.
2) I can change the display order of sections, but not categories.
3) I can make sub-sections as well as sub-categories.

What am I missing here?

An article can be in one and only one section, but it can be assigned to multiple categories. On our site, we have a section titled "Jigs and Fixtures," and an article in that section, for example, can belong to the category "Fence attachments" as well as the "Traditional TableSaw" category.

So, if I do not have a need to assign articles to multiple categories, the "Sections" are all I need?

Exactly, if you need both, they're there, if not, set up your sections and call it good.
