However, I found out that MySQL does not work very well under load under
Windows 2000. It is considerably slower than a similar configured Linux
system. It may be how MySQL AB compiled the Windows binaries (I use the
official binaries for both Windows and Linux).
I do have one or two Win32 MySQL installations because we did not want to
setup a dedicated server. They are use for small things here and there.
It all depends on application! :)

Also, Is there anyone who uses Windows on a Mysql production server? I
want to use FreeBSD or Linux but that might not be up to me.
