Thank you for your interest in Windows Essential Business Server 2008 (EBS). We are streamlining our portfolio and will discontinue future development of EBS. Beginning June 30, 2010 until December 31, 2010, current EBS 2008 customers can get the individual component software from the suite for free (local taxes, shipping and handling charges may apply). This means EBS 2008 customers can get copies of Windows Server 2008 Standard, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Standard and Microsoft System Center Essentials 2007. If this promotion is of interest to you we encourage you to mark a reminder in your calendar to visit the EBS 2008 site between June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2010 to claim this offer.

I believe a move to encourage individual buying of products especially System Center.

I think you're probably right about that. I haven't heard much of a fuss being made by current EBS customers. Perhaps they expected this.

Yeah, i guess so. Also a note from best of my knowledge which may be not known to EBS customers is, Windows 2008 R2 Standard will not support Exchange 2007 installation which means upgrade to Exchange 2010.

Well, as you know, Exchange 2010 is better. ;)
