Anyone can use it - the limitation of MSE has nothing to do with licence and everything to do with how it is designed. It is designed for home, small businesses and so forth because it lacks the enterprise management that comes with Microsofts Forefront.

Personally MSE is the best out of all of them with the icing on the cake being that MSE is free - too bad people put their hatred of Microsoft ahead of honestly reviewing the software as 'AnythingButVista' has.
