Abstract: This paper investigates the ring-theoretic similarities and the categorical dissimilarities between the ring of row finite matrices and the ring of row and column finite matrices. For example, we prove that two rings and are Morita equivalent if and only if the rings and are isomorphic. This resembles the result of V. P. Camillo (1984) for . We also show that the Picard groups of and are isomorphic, even though the rings and are never Morita equivalent.
