How much RAM what kind of a disk setup? In a telnet session like 5250? If
you are talking a server setup (SCSI, 512MB + RAM) Linux could handle quite
a few. As far as numbers go (shrugs shoulders) idunno. If you are referring
to a desktop setup(256MB RAM, IDE), not as many, but still quite a few.

I just saw an article the other day on how to setup linux to allow more than
one user use the computer at the same time. So linux is getting closer to
the corporate desktop, how much money could be saved by putting 4 users per
system, especially those that only use Office, Email, Internet, AS400
connections in a GUI environment! Granted you need a decent CPU and good
chunk of RAM.
