The statement " Windows applications are not designed for simultaneous use by
users (think about it - you simply can't do that on a Windows PC)" is wrong.
You don't expect an install of Microsoft Office per every existing user on a
Windows PC, do you ?
You can also open multiple instances of Microsoft Word with 2 or more users
logged on at the same time.
