You know how Windows NT comes in two versions --- NT Server, which can
handle intensive server use, and NT Workstation, which can't? Turns
out (according to the generally reliable, though certainly not
disinterested, folks at O'Reilly & Associates) that the two products
are the same --- same kernels, same DLLs; the only difference they
could find between the two (aside from the extra components bundled
with NT server) is a couple of registry settings which enable or
disable the infamous ten-connection choke. See
