Ok then, here is your big problem. For any type of scalability using a Windows machine, you will need to run NT. Then, you are going to need to have your main application run at all times as a service. Visual Basic can not make an application that runs as a service. You have to use C++. (There IS a way to run a VB app as a service, but it is unsupported and has severe memory issues.) Of course, this may be different with VB.Net. I will think over it more and see if I can think of other issues ... not to burst your bubble, but to help find possible hitches ... I assume that is one reason you posted your idea to the list.
