"Windows" is not very specific. I don't use it myself these days, but
I have heard that Microsoft at one time imposed a limit on number of
TCP/IP connections a Windows NT Workstation could have active at once.
Something like 10 open sockets. Their goal was to persuade you to pay
a lot more money for Windows NT Server instead, if you actually intend
to use the machine as a server. There's a registry entry somewhere to
disable this "feature", but that's essentially equivalent to cracking
NT Server, so if you are the sort who would do that, you may as well
just pirate the real thing. (Yes, the connection limit is specified in
the EULA.)

I don't know if they still do this with the various modern home,
professional and server editions of NT, but it wouldn't surprise me.
