What about added setup and deployment costs? Added support costs?

Take that post. See how with condensing that down to little snippits of scripts that you can reuse over and over again that you can minimize the setup and deployment costs? Not to mention, aren’t most of your clients going to be migrating from SBS 2003? Like that migration doesn’ t have setup and deployment costs of migration headaches?
And support costs? Again need I remind you of SharePoint on SBS 2011 standard and how much it costs you and your client when it blows?
I’m not saying this isn’t a lot of change thrown at folks… but I still say our biggest issues are that it’s a pricing problem that Microsoft can fix, not that it’s setup and support costs.
The balls in your court, Mr. Ballmer.
