AFAIK Windows NT Workstation and Windows 2000 Professional are
limited to 10 incoming network connections.
So using these versions only makes sense when you have a small
number of users.

Generally, I can say that within this limit of users, there is
no big difference between the server and the workstation edition
of WinNT/Win2K; neither in performance nor in functionality
(concerning Interbase).
