Being one of the developers behind UOX3 way back in 1998 when it was
something new, I know that this UO emulator is pretty high in
requirements.  Handling more than a hundred players means having a
PC with lots of RAM and at least a PIII-800MHz. Of course you can
run it on a lower macine, but it's going to starve as soon as you've
got some players online and a big worldfile.

Most of the big shards you see around are on dedicated machines, or
at least they're sharing their CPU power with other servers
completely different, like Rogue Spear or Quake 3.  Just my 0.02$
