Subject Re: Strawberry perl + mod_perl (call for testers)

I have very good experiences with Apache under Windows. Especially with
running under Windows 2008 64 Bit (with 32 bit versions of Apache and Perl).
It runs very fast and comes close to the speed of running under Linux.

One big disadvantage is that you can only run in Worker MPM. If you have a
big modperl application it uses much more memory than with the Prefork MPM
on Linux. Also restarting Apache Worker takes more time then with Prefork
MPM on Linux.

But stability and performance are very good.
