SBS - Top Ten (Plus One) Myths about Windows Small Business Server 2003

We came across this Microsoft site: The Top Ten (Plus One) Myths About Windows Small Business Server 2003.

Here are the myths in a nutshell:
  1. I cannot add additional servers to a Windows SBS domain.
  2. I cannot run Terminal Services in the Windows SBS domain.
  3. Windows SBS doesn't scale.
  4. Windows SBS requires different hardware than Microsoft Windows Server 2003.
  5. I cannot upgrade my current server.
  6. I'm going to outgrow Windows SBS.
  7. The Exchange Server 2003 mail store limit is too small.
  8. My applications are not supported on Windows SBS.
  9. Windows SBS has scaled-down versions of applications.
  10. I can't use the tools from Windows Server 2003 in Windows SBS.
  11. Windows SBS isn't secure.
For those of us who design, implement, service, and support network infrastructure around SBS, we know these myths are a load of bunk.

If anything, it is a good 5 minute read to refresh and/or inform us of what SBS is not.
