nginx Window native

Going through nginx/Windows usage <>
I see that there are some important limitations:

Known issues

   - Although several workers can be run, only one of them actually does
   any work.
   - A worker can handle no more than 1024 simultaneous connections.
   - The cache and other modules which require shared memory support do not
   work in Windows Vista and later due to address space layout randomization
   being enabled in these Windows versions.

What are the reasons behind these limitations? Is it that this version of
nginx should not be used if performance/scalability are required? Are the
same limitations present in the Cygwin version of nginx?

Please advise.
