I am hoping to buy your unlimited $297 offer but need to know if plugins - specifically Backup buddy / Security among others also will work within a Windows server environment, whether you have a recommendation as to best (tested) framework to use to run WP on Windows server for your plugins and any other relevant info. Alas main client I am buying this for is intractable on Windows - however misguided.

Hi Stephan,

We don't recommend Windows though we code it to run there. Windows does not handle larger sites as well without customizing with eg: adding command line zip support. Much WordPress functionality works best on Linux and if on Windows then an apache-based setup rather than IIS.
