Scalability in widnows

Hi all,

Erlang is well known for its ability to scale, for example as shown
here: http://www.sics.se/~joe/apachevsyaws.html

I believe that much of this scalability comes from the underlying
operating system and its event APIs (e.g. kqueue, poll etc) My
question is what happens in windows platforms. Does erlang manage to
excibit the same performance? Does it use some advanced windows API or
the "good" old select? And finally do you have any real (production)
Erlang application in windows and real world experience about its
performace?

Thank you very much for any responses!

Stelios
