Short for small business edition, SBE was used to describe a version of Microsoft Office suite that was shipped with OEM computers. Microsoft SBE can include programs like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Streets. However, Microsoft SBE does not included Microsoft Access or Visio.


Today, Microsoft no longer has an SBE model, but computers may still ship with Office trial software programs.
