Both Business and Enterprise versions indicate they:

  • Supports the desktop versions of Office apps, Outlook, and OneDrive
  • Supports the desktop versionof Microsoft Teams

Support does not mean include.

Also for Enterprise I have found:

Windows 365 Enterprise users must be licensed for Windows 10 Enterprise or Windows 11 Enterprise, Microsoft Endpoint Manager, and Azure Active Directory P1. In addition to being available independently, these licenses are included in Microsoft 365 F3, Microsoft 365 E3, Microsoft 365 E5, Microsoft 365 A3, Microsoft 365 A5, Microsoft 365 Business Premium, and Microsoft 365 Education Student Use Benefit subscriptions.

 

So it is obvious Enterprise requires additional licensing for Microsoft 365, there is nothing for business though.

 

Can you spell out, including a link to reference material on the site what is included and if there is additional cost what it is. 

 

We want access to Office, SharePoint, One Drive, Exchange Online and want to know the cost. Last I looked at Azure to set up 5 machines by the time configured the networking, AAD, AADS, AVD Office Microsoft had us scheduled to be paying over $1000 per month which was nothing like the pricing on the virtual machines.

 

So can you give us a way to price the whole environment to get up and running. It would be nice to be able to put together easily what Microsoft pricing is
