Questions tagged [windows-sbs-2008]

Windows Small Business Server 2008 is the Microsoft operating system in the `SBS` line based on Windows Server 2008. It went RTM August 21st, 2008 and officially launched November 12th, 2008. Like the rest of the `SBS` line, it includes a number of Microsoft products bundled with it, the tradeoff being that the number of users is limited and some functionality useful for larger organizations is disabled.
