I've found that both Apache on Windows and IIS give acceptable
performance w/ PHP on lightly loaded servers. (<10 hits/sec) My
impression is, overall, that Apache serves static pages on Windows
about an order of magnitude slower than it does on an equivalent machine
running Linux... Still, I've seen Windows/Apache serve >100 static
hits per second and I think that would please a lot of people.
Personally I develop on Windows and deploy on Linux. I've been
happy with XAMPP as a development environment. So long as you don't let
windows let you get sloppy about the case of filenames, you'll do
alright... Sometimes I think about configuring ext3 on my Linux
machines to be case insensitive to clear that little problem up.
