Microsoft will halt development of its mid-market oriented Windows Essential Business Server software bundle, as the company bets on "cloud computing" rather than lump licensing to woo penny-pinching IT markets.

Umm... Who's gonna miss it?
Personally I never saw the market for EBS.
It's been my experience that once you've outgrown sbs, surely there's a number of reasons to run individual servers - namely performance, not having the whole network down if one box has a fault, that sort of thing
EBS runs individual servers
EBS does run on individual servers
I spy a business opportunity for anyone with experience in configuring Exim, Apache, MySQL and SAMBA.
USP: No per-seat licencing cost means that you will never be in the absurd position of having to turn away business because you can't afford to have more users on your computer system.
Your data, we wants it
