Looks like MAPS finally gets Enterprise Server back

I've been asking Microsoft ever since they failed to replace Windows Server 2003 Enterprise in MAPS why they thought this was a good move, especially now as WS2K8 Ent includes 4 Virtualized Guest OS Licenses. No-one came up with a reasonable explanation - all I heard was "if you want it, buy it or download the eval", neither of which are valid responses for MAPS users, considering we originally had this software (admittedly, back in the Windows Server 2003 days).

So, according to this page, MAPS users will be receiving Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. Finally someone in there has seen the light - the reason I was asking for this on behalf of all MAPS users is that it means we can actually evaluate the software in MAPS properly which will enable us to support *and sell* it more easily.

If they can put back the Enterprise version, they can put back a version of Office that can be installed on a Terminal Server.
