    I can't confirm this, but I remember reading or being told quite a while
    ago that Citrix had purchased an NT-source license. It was the basis
    for their product, which basically hacked at the NT kernel and made it
    multi-user over the network (as an application server). When you bought
    the Citrix product, as I recall, you got a "new" NT kernel that would
    let you connect up over the network and actually "log in" to NT from
    several desktops.
