Lots of Action Around Small Business Server

Eric Ligman, Microsoft's U.S. senior manager of Small Business Community Engagement, has been busy over on his small business community blog in the last week. For one thing, there's a new Windows Small Business Server Test Drive feature designed to help partners show Small Business Server to prospects through a Web-based tool. There's a similar customer-facing tool on the SBS 2003 R2 product site, but it doesn't have as many bells and whistles as the version for partners to show their customers. Find out more here.

Also, Ligman blogged that the SBS Partner Subsidy promotion is being expanded. This is an extra discount for SBS customers who buy from Small Business Specialists. Check it out here.
