SBS 2008 VL Pricing

Robbie Announced SBS 2008 Open Licensing pricing

Product Base Cost (5 CALs)
SBS 2008 Standard $1694
Addidional CALs $120

SBS 2008 Premium $2954
Addidional CALs $294

Remember, SBS 2008 Premium users ONLY need Premium CALs if they use the Premium functionality (basically, SQL).

Compare that to US$1089 for Standard, and you see how overpriced Microsoft Australia still remains, despite hounding from their partners for quite some time now.

And here's the FPP pricing:

T72-02383 Windows Small Bus Server Std 2008 English DVD 5 Clt $1,902 ERP
T75-02411 Windows Small Bus Server Prem 2008 English 2 DVD 5 Clt $3,313 ERP

Regards,

The Outspoken Wookie
