My understanding is that you should use the mpm_winnt MPM. On Windows
platforms, this is the only MPM that takes advantage of the operating
system's native capabilities. If you use a different MPM, a POSIX layer
will be used, which one must assume will hinder performance considerably
(and detract from the server's feature-set).

If anyone else knows differently, please chime-in.
