Terminal server on MS Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard

I'm looking at buying a Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard box. I need to know if there are any quirky things with Terminal server. We're basically buying the machine so that I can have roughly 15 people log into it using RDP. Nothing more. I just want to make sure SBS 11 doesn't have some different than Windows 2008 when it comes to running Terminal services/rdp. Also, how many people can log into Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard before I have to upgrade to more licenses? 5?

@ fl_fly...Since its a new server, is it easy to upgrade (or downgrade for that matter) to 2008? i.e can I just run the installation or do I have to upgrade specifically to windows 2012?

I ended up buying a server with no OS. I have several open licenses for Windows server so I opted for Windows 2008 Server Enterprise R2. Now my question is how many default connections can I have with 2008 r2? thanks!

Thanks fly. for future readers, I bought a server with no OS. I loaded Windows 2008 Server R2 Enterprise. I went out and purchased 10 TS user CALs for my RDP application. Thanks guys!
