It's very simple - this system was set up many years ago and I was 
uncomfortable at the time with running Linux -- not with the stability 
of Linux at the time and not with my skills administering it.  The next 
server that I will set up for production will be a Linux machine, but 
until then I'm stuck with Windows.

I was using IIS as a web server for many years, until about five years 
ago I "saw the light" and upgraded to nginx.  Having nginx available for 
Windows is a great thing because it serves as a stepping stone and 
allows Windows users to make smaller changes to their systems rather 
than one big change.

I agree that XP is out of the picture now, and the servers that I need 
to support are 2008R2 which are built on the Vista code base so this 
system call is supported.

Can you explain briefly how WSAPoll would help here?
