Is anyone else amazed at how many people use nginx on Windows?

I mean.... really?

If you're looking for performance, is Windows really your target OS?
and security?

Not to mention things like php-fpm don't exist...

I've been surprised at the demand for nginx on Windows. I figure
people running nginx are looking for a high performance solution, and
why anyone would run Windows for python/perl/php/fastcgi stuff makes
me very confused. I'd only run Windows if I needed .NET/ASP/something

Oh well :)
