Could you kindly post in a way that others can understand you, it's starting to get annoying.


Yes, please do. And "she" is not sexist. Sexist would be saying, "oh, shes a woman doing a mans job?". So please start talking properly and sensibly or you know what will happen.

You should note that if anyone was being sexist it would be dealt with VERY seriously.

No. XP Home is limited to one physical CPU socket, XP Pro to two. But there's no limit regarding the number of cores.

Ah I see, I misunderstood the EULA (well, not so misunderstood, as didn't fully read).

We want to know this why? And use proper grammar. Its not to hard to capitalize the first letter in a sentence and on words/letters like "I".

I did actually skim-read the Vista one as I had been talking to someone about something that they had seen in it (yeh, I guess I'm sad or something! :P) It's not actually as long and difficult to understand as some of them, maybe they've realised that they need to be like that if people are to read them?

Is the licence restriction to two cores enforced by Windows or not? As I thought it couldn't distinguish between cores and actual processors, given that mine appears in Windows to have two actual processors, when in fact it is a single P4 HT (HT appears as dual-core), so I don't see how they could enforce it for 3+ CPUs, but not 3+ cores.

Windows NT and 2000 can't distinguish between actual CPUs, multiple cores or HT technology, but XP and newer can. XP lists your P4HT as two individual CPUs, but it knows better. Install XP Home on your machine – it'll show two CPUs. Install it on a dual-core box, same. Install it on a real SMP box – one CPU.

All I did was ask if she'd be worried about the power consumption if the server would be running 24/7. I don't see a problem in asking that. But let's end that here, this will lead to nowhere.
