EBS is limited to 300 users that's the biggest difference to the normal OS
versions. EBS is not able to built a trust to another domain/forest, another
Exchange 2010 will run on Windows server 2008 with SP2 or Windows server
2008 R2, so you need an additional license for this. As EBS isn't that old
i am not sure if there will be new version with Exchange 2010.
Here are some unique EBS features, not included in normal OS: http://www.microsoft.com/ebs/en/us/overview.aspx
Of course the price a big difference, EBS is cheaper and has some limitations
as described above.
