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

Don't waste your time on the Windows build. Concentrate on making nginx 
better and better on Linux.

nginx is by far the best, and keeps getting better and better. Making 
everything work on windows will just slow you down.

It is amazing how great a product you have developed, and I have loved 
watching the progress, and I love using your server.

If you are using nginx on Windows, then you are an idiot. Go away and 
use apache or IIS.
