It depends on what version of Windows we would receive (assuming the
optimistic case where we actually receive something, of course).

E. g. Windows Server Datacenter version allows for unlimited Windows Server
VMs. Windows Server Standard allows for only 2 Windows Server VMs. Windows
Server Essentials no VMs. Windows 7/8/etc VMs are not allowed unless
Software Assurance is included.

Let's see if we are accepted, then we will see what we can do with whatever
we receive.
