I've been running Zope on Windows for a couple or three years now 
(primarily NT4, but more recently W2K) and under my pattern of usage 
(/Relatively/ light usage, but far from trivial) I've had no significant 
stability problems - a good few quirks, but nothing more than comes with 
the territory.

I'm sure that for high load situations (possibly in the OP's case?), and 
where there is a lot more interfacing and coding going on, a non-Windows 
platform would have advantages - but I wouldn't like your comment to put 
anyone off considering or deploying Zope on Windows.

Put it this way - it's more stable than Windows itself, and more stable 
than many bread-and-butter applications many of us run on Windows every day.

If I was specifying an environment for Zope from scratch, I /wouldn't/ 
choose Windows. I've never had that luxury - my situation has always 
been "Windows is a given - now what?". I've never been bitten choosing 
Zope in that environment.
