- While nginx works in a Windows environment, the Windows version of nginx is more like a proof-of-concept rather than a fully functional port.
- nginx doesn't support dynamically loaded modules; i.e., modules are compiled along with the core at build stage.
- nginx conserves CPU cycles as well because there's no ongoing create-destroy pattern for processes or threads.
- nginx does not currently support Apache-style distributed configurations (i.e.,
.htaccessfiles). All of the configuration relevant to nginx web server behavior should reside in a centralized set of configuration files.
