probably not a thing, rachel, however like I said, if the small business 
already has SBS, they are in all likelihood locked into the MS paradigm. 
  "It's there, let's use it, every other windows user we deal with will 
be doing the same so lets stick with what's known and can be supported. 
  It might also be possible to share our document drafts easily with our 
associates using sharepoint too."  is probably how the 
argument/rationale goes.
