Pricing really hasn't changed much has it?
In cleaning out the closet to prepare for painting and new carpeting at the office (when you resign the lease with the landlord) stuffed in the back of the closet along with old Gateway OEM media I found a cdrom that had SBS 4.5 marketing material. Why I stuffed it in the closet I have no clue but it was interesting in the price tag of SBS 4.5 back then along with SKU B58-00002. Called the BackOffice SBS/Office Pro 4.5 bundle it combined SBS with Office licenses.
BackOffice SBS/OfficePro 4.5 English NA
CD 5 Client CRYPTO Com
This SKU is designed with an integrated installation between Small Business Server with Office 2000 Professional, and comes with 5 Small Business Server Client Access Licenses and 5 Office 2000 Professional Licenses
As much as Microsoft is hyping up the ability for SBS v7 to offer up SharePoint 2010's ability to support Office Web Apps, one can only hope that there is somewhere in Redmond some licensing people strongly putting something similar to this back into the product bundling mix.
But if you want to stroll down some really old pricing (interestingly enough Premium pricing really hasn't changed over the years has it?) check this out..
