180 users, UNIX or NT ? Hardware requirements

Hi, We have a new client with 180 users. It is a trading company, with all the normal processes: sales / purchache orders / invoicing / etc… Has anybody experience with a large number of users ? Which hardware will be needed ? Known problems ? (Table-locking, …) Does UNIX perform better than NT ? Thnx, Jos van de Werken Weha Automatisering b.v. The Netherlands
