I am not in a school situation but if would be pointless if the
multiple clicks are not avoided even with faster server+multiple CPU's
there are times when lag will occur when many users will start an
application together.
Better is to group UID's in a range and then make a script that
restricts number of program instances based on UID. This way you can
have people in certain UID range - say teachers - launch multiple
instances while restricting the others.
