In UDP mode, XP should scale up to the ability of the CPU and network link 
to handle the client load.

In TCP mode, XP is going to be more limited and not scale as well as Linux 
or other *nix OSes.

When running on Linux 2.6, OpenVPN 2.0 has a special optimization (i.e.  
epoll) which allows it to efficiently handle large numbers of TCP

This optimization only applies to TCP mode.  In UDP mode, OpenVPN is able 
to scale up equally well on all OSes.
