"with up to four CPUs – somewhat short of the thousands supported by Linux "

Not my area, but I'm guessing that only a few businesses running open source use 1,000-CPU desktops.

there are some 8-core AMD processors out there, last I looked. we'd get MORE of that at lower prices if Micro-shaft would stop it with the CPU core limits in the OS. Those limits are from the 90's - NT4 had a 4 core limit (server OS also) in the base OS. Then I think you had to pay a license for additional cores. not sure how that worked internally, though.
