Virtual Server processor clarification

This continually comes up as a query, what the limitation is for installing Virtual Server 2005 standard edition? Standard edition supports up to four processors, and indeed won't install on a machine with more than 4 processors. But what is a processor? What about dual-cores and hyperthreaded processors? The answer: Virtual Server counts dual-core and hyperthreaded processors as a single processor. Hence, four refers to physical processors.
