    Apple test it up to 10000 for OS X Server (but the manager limits you to 8000). It should be pretty much the same deal for the client OS.

    Just don't expect to be logged into all 8000 at once, and you should be okay.

    How does my university do it then? It has an emac lab, and each person has a separate account...and there are well over 20 000 people in the school...each with an account on those computers (regardless of whether they use that computer or not)

    The 10000 is just the number of users they test for, and the 8000 is how many they support in their GUI.

    It looks like Darwin is using u_int32_t for its uid_t, so figure on 4 gigausers =) Whether or not all the supporting tools can actually support that is another story, which is why the vendor's stated limits are useful.
