    The difference is that Windows Server is just a server.  No Products except for a web server and a few other things.

    Small Business Server contains not only the Windows Server product but a ton of other applications such as Exchange (Mail server).

    Here`s more information (PDF format) about what Small Business Server contains in the two packages.  This will explain better the differences and the prices.

    GREAT!

    Thanks for your help... Do you happen to know if SBS supports multiple Terminal Server connections?

    It sounds like SBS contains more products than Server 2003.  I wonder why it is less expensive?  What are the limitations?



    Historically, the limits are on usage (licences, how many users can connnetct, etc).  I haven`t used it for years so I`m not sure what the changes/limits are in the 2003 version.

    Terminal Server is part of Windows Server so the answer is yes you can have multiple connections.

    Does anyone know the difference between Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003?  Also, what is the difference between the different MS Office products.  Office Premium, Pro, standard, student, ultimate, small business, etc. 

    Is there any grid out there that shows the difference between all these different products.  I couldn`t find anything on the Microsoft website.

    Here is a comparison of the MS Office suite.  Not really sure about the Windows Small Business Server...
