If you're planning for a high-performance high-load system, don't use
Windows 2003 Standard Edition. It has serious limitations in the TCP/IP
stack. I wasn't able to open more than ~3500 concurrent network
connections to a database cluster. The common error was "no buffer space
available".

Linux on the same machine works fine. Would be interesting if Win 2003
EE or DCE has the same limitation.

The real pain was not the limitation itself, but that is _not_
documented. The error message is listed as a common error that occurs in
many different situations. Great.
