What caught me there was that DirectAccess also requires the
Enterprise/Ultimate version of Win7. I don't know what the price
difference will be from somewhere like Dell, but for the licenses, it's
about double the price. It's a shame, I had hopes that it might make
setting some stuff up for our users a little easier.
