    Small Business Server 2003

    We have several clients who use SBS. With the new version coming out (supposedly October), I'm trying to find out if the new (cheaper) version still comes with 5 CALs. There is little or no information about that on the Microsoft site and only 1 article I found seems to mention it, but it was several months old. Anyone hear anything about this?

    If the basic SBS 2003 is cheaper, but you now have to buy the initial 5 CALs, that really doesn't save money, does it? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Deborah, I just read an article @work a couple days ago about SBS. Look here: Microsoft bundles up for small businesses .

    Joe:

    Thanks for the link. That's the first one I've seen with what looks like legitimate information.

    This matches much of the information I've heard:

    Thanks for the additional information. Until you guys helped out, the only articles I was able to find mentioned nothing about the CALs with the initial purchase. I figured Microsoft was going to make their money back on the price reduction by making the client buy the licenses just like Windows Server. <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>
