Microsoft to Give Security Essentials Away to Small Businesses ... But Only the Very Smallest Businesses [windowsitpro.com]

Microsoft on Wednesday announced that its Security Essentials anti-malware product, which is currently available free to individuals, would also be given away to the very smallest businesses. Starting in early October, businesses with 10 or fewer PCs will be able to download and install Microsoft Security Essentials for free.

That sounds like a good deal, until you realize that businesses with 10 or fewer PCs were already downloading and installing MSE for free, because businesses of this size don't purchase software when they don't have to. So this is more like Microsoft formalizing an already-common activity.
