We have been running Zope on Windows  for about a year.  Works fine for 
while but we experiences load issues with it behind Apache.  So we switched 
to straight up ZServer.  This worked fine for awhile and now we are 
experiencing major load that way.

So I installed Cygwin and Setup a Squid Accelerator and it is working 
faster than ever.

Zope is still a little slow sometimes in the management interface but 
otherwise the content is delivered quickly to our customers.  That is what 
is important.

That all said we will be moving to a Linux environment in a few Weeks.
