Hmm, you mean max no. of users ?
libc5 seems to limit this to 65535.
Linux kernel 2.2.14 (last stable version as far as I know)
limits this to 'unisgned short' as well. So seems, 65536
users is the max.

I was thinking more along the lines of how many linux boxes are there vs. how many Windows boxes are there, etc.
