Of course that's the word of the license.  Obviously 'what's a connection'
is always interesting, you end up with far more than 10 connections using
email/web/chat all at the same time, browsers will create two parallel
connections at once (pipelining images/scripts/css as they are referenced
by the main document), ftp is actually two sockets (data and control), etc...
the spirit of the document implies 10 users.

In fact it is metered by NTLM authentication, if you loaded mod_auth_sspi
or configured IIS for auth, you will observe this to be enforced.  Ten
authenticated clients is a hard limit.
