They'd be equivalent, but you should always put some folder there, 
having every file as a wiki-article gives to problems when you want 
non-wiki file on your site (eg. robots.txt).

This isn't really categories. I think you're searching some kind of 
subpages (which you need to enable and may not do everything you expect 
them to)
