I've heard that the WoW MMO model is simpler to run then EQ2 hence uses less resources? While they have a much smaller subscriber base, they also seem to have a slightly smaller number of servers per a subscriber.I would be interested to know, one thing I do not get about this story though is that it seems to imply that WoW's servers are are not run on dedicated hardware, but can share the share computer? If true then each time a realm goes down then I guess we are just seeing a software problem, even then I would expect some knock on effects to other realms sometimes with lag etc from programs gone rogue.

Dedicated hardware is a stupid use of resources- you can achieve isolation other ways, and dedicated servers will prevent load balancing leading to less stability overall.Don't try to tell us that EQ2 is stable because it's awesome- it's stable because nobody plays it ;)
