Sidebar on sizing. One client of mine had 240 users on a 75 mhz 486 R90
system. Around 30 printers with the rest as users both as local and
multiplexed. Slow? Sort of. Working? Yes. MTBF? Incredibly infrequent given
the user count.

The system was written in ScreenGen which was ABS heavy. Also the
application was heavily app and system indexed. Converted to D3/AIX with
beaucoups of Digi-Boards. Flamethrower.
