Bye-Bye, WEBS

If you're a midmarket company, a version of Windows Server built just for you is no more. Well, it still exists -- it's just that there will be no new versions of Windows Essential Business Server.

The server was aimed at shops with 75 to 300 end users and, like Small Business Server, was designed to be easy to set up and manage, and included most of the core apps a shop of that size should need.

For Microsoft, the move will save some money. And it was seeing -- or at least expecting -- flagging demand as midmarket shops look to the cloud for application services.

Will you miss WEBS? Do you use Small Business Server and, if so, what do you think? Answers to either question welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
