I downloaded DEMO and tried it, so what?

you have to pay $6000 for 15 client license - it is better to spend money
on additional memory for older 486 or just to buy new boxes - 3-4 for the
price. And ... if anybody will explain me how do Microsoft RPC work... and
why it takes so long to make a clustering solution for NT if, as they
claim, it is all pretty standard and well documented.
