True - .NET will be a problem with Apache.
I was also wrong about the default of two connections (I got this confused with the HTTP 1.1 spec which specifies a limit of two simultaneous connections to the same server).  For IIS on XP Pro the default limit is 10 connections, and if you apply the workaround you can increase this to 40.

	The only problem with this is if you want to use the .NET web extensions.  The available Apache .NET module does not fully support .NET 2.0 and the MapGuide API.  You can partially get around the IIS simultaneous connection issue by editing the Windows metabase.  I have done this and have not had any issues developing MGOS applications on XP Pro (but our production server is a server OS).  Details on this are in a document I wrote for MapServer Enterprise installs.  Much of this document does not apply anymore with the release of MGOS 1.0, but this particular section, the very last one in the document, still does apply.  It can be downloaded from http://www.spatialgis.com/mse_install_tips.pdf

	Also if you do use XP, then Apache is the preferred Web server.  Apache supports an unlimited number of simultaneous connections, while IIS on XP only supports two.  If you want to use IIS then you should install MapGuide on a server OS.

	MapGuide is a server application and should be run on a “Server Class” operating system, ie: Windows 2000 and Windows 2003. 

	However, it does work on Windows XP, but is not “Officially” supported. For demo purposes in house we have setup MapGuide server and Studio on a Windows XP machine, but again this is not officially supported. For any real applications you should be using a “Server Class” operating system.

	Hello All,


	Does Mapguide Server work  on windows XP Professional? 


	As mentioned in the requirements, it works only on Windows NT 2003 and Windows 2000. 


	But it is not specified in the Installation guide  (https://mapguide.osgeo.org/docs/InstallConfigureMapGuideOnWindows.pdf) that what operating system should be used?
