How many processes, threads, and handles can you make? How does Windows react when it's pushed to the limit? This session goes deep into the kernel to explain what limits Windows from creating more processes, threads, handles, and what the real limits are for physical and virtual memory. How much more can you do with 64-bits? Live demos show the effect on Windows when various resources are exhausted.
