ready for desktop, that's a fact.

Windows NT Workstation was in fact identical to Server - except with
intentional limiters placed within the registry to prevent admins from
avoiding purchasing the "full" server product. However, you could
hack it and make it a "Server".

NT Workstation was the 'easy way' to begin to turn the platform into a
viable desktop OS. They were able to establish a base and an
appreciation for the accomplishments of the NT OS - as well as a
corporate desire for a more stable business platform for employee
workstations.

I was a NT 3.x+ beta tester and dev support. Yep, I installed NT from
lots of floppies.
