News on Software Assurance
Word is that as of 10/1 that SBS 2008 will be in the pricing lists. Thus if you want to purchase SBS 2003 with software assurance you will need to purchase retail or OEM copies of SBS 2003 and THEN add Software asurance.
I had heard before that SA would be there until October 31, but it may be that with the October price list that that SBS 2003 is not available under volume license.
