  Yale University Library: Policies Governing Use of and Access to Public Workstations
Other researchers have access to at least one research workstation in each library that is open to the general public.
When demand for research workstations exceeds supply, other researchers are asked to limit their use of library workstations to those designated as "general use" and "Orbis-only." In addition, priority in the use of library workstations is given to those accessing Orbis and resources that can only be accessed on library research workstations.
The use of library research workstations is subject to the same policies governing the use of other Yale University facilities, including all applicable state and federal laws, copyright restrictions, and license agreements.

 CNN - Windows NT workstations beating out Unix - January 25, 1999
However, due to a huge increase in shipments of cheaper "branded" Windows NT workstations (workstations marketed explicitly as workstations, not high-end desktops) as a fraction of total units, revenues actually declined by 3 percent to $14.7 billion over the same period, said IDC.
In units, branded NT workstations exploded with 98 percent growth in units (to 776,206) and 60 percent in revenue (to $3.6 billion).
The strong growth in branded NT workstations was chalked up to the increased focus by the major PC vendors on the workstation segment.
