I was thinking about a similar question while reading the Plan 9 postings:
What is meant by 'PoC'? Let me try to answer your question.
1. 'PC' is, I believe, an abreviation for 'Personal Computer'
2. 'Multi-seat' is several seats, which could only imply several persons
   occupying those (several) seats.
Ergo, a confused expression open to multiple interpretations,
and no exact meaning whatsoever. 

Can you help me with 'PoC'?
