This FAQ entry seems to be not [entirely] correct. Since I am not too
sure myself, would like to confirm it in this list.

According to Helen's book, Firebird superserver can use SMP on Linux.
(p.5). I am still not sure if the issue with Windows doesn't exist or
maybe exists, but is not so critical.

Respectively the CPUAffinityMask option is valid only on Windows. (see
the comment in firebird.conf).

Also the Classic server has not been available on Windows before
Firebird 1.5
