Why you would want to run IB server on Windows 2k Server is beyond me.
There is no "user" limit as IB just runs on a open port and users don't
need an account (hence the 10 concurrent user limit of win2k is for LOGINs)

Save all that money you would spend on Win2k Server license's and CAL and
buy more memory or a faster HD for Win2k Prof and you'll be much happier.

Microsoft wants you to believe that Win2k Server will run your stuff
better but is there any empirical evidence?

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).
