While reading about some of the new changes to licensing with 2007/Vista, etc I came across this incredible mention.
I mention it very specifically as I have an entry farther down exclaiming that in 2003, Outlook is tied to your Exchange licensing. That however is no longer the case. While certainly you can get around this with having your CORE Cal’s for Office, or the Enterprise desktop, this will mean some changes of experience or interpretation from the licensing stand point. So, with that said, the below is the ‘final’ word, or atleast published on VARBusiness. If I get additional links on this off of MS’s site, I shall include it there respectively.
10. The Open Value upgrade from Office Pro to Office Enterprise costs $70. Outlook is no longer part of the Exchange CAL.
