This is because YOU have the responsibility of controlling the number of 
threads that are allowed to run your application. Depending upon how much 
you expect your box to get hit, or how little, and how BIG your application 
is, the hardware requirements will vary wildly. You can determine these 
factors by developing on a minimal development machine and benchmarking.

I consider this a great strength of this software as I do not have to 
dedicate a dual processor, 2GB ram machine to my developers, while I may 
require it for production.

I had problems with this too, initially, but you may grow to appreciate it.
