The Differences Between Duplicate And Save As

In most apps you can choose to Duplicate the current document, or use a hidden Save As command to do something very similar. What are the differences between the two commands and what other alternatives are there?

    Thanks for the comprehensive look at these features. For me, Apple has gone way overboard in offering these options. As long as I have my wits, Save As works for me the first time I save, Command S saves my followups, and life goes on.

    Thank you so very much, Gary! I’ve learned a lot here, as usual. I was never confident that Save As wouldn’t delete my original. And the information here on the Lock and Stationary Pad is so helpful — I had misunderstood Lock (I thought it was like securely Locking a document in Notes), and had no idea what Stationary Pad was! How would we know this stuff without you!?! Many, many thanks!
