I didn't see anything about Win2k there.  Or in the linked Ray Chen 
blog and comments.  Or in the referenced MS license page.

I thought win2k pre-dated all the x86 multicore CPUs, so I wasn't 
sure if it was smart enough to distinguish between cores and 
sockets.  It's good to know that it does.  (I'm trying to talk myself 
into building up a new box, and I really don't want to run XP.)

I was hoping that someone might have seen a Win2k pro system running 
on a dual-dual (or even a dual-quad!), just as confirmation of your statements.
