As someone who has to spend most of their time in Windows at the moment, I'd

of Riak nodes in a Linux VM on my Windows desktop is as fast, if not faster,
than talking to other databases (such as SQL Server and MySQL) with native
installations. The time and effort to set this up is also comparable.
As far as production deployments are concerned I would be happy (if not
prefer) to fire up Linux servers to run my Riak nodes instead of Windows.
Partly because of the cost involved, partly for other reasons such as
In short, don't let the lack of Windows support put you off. You can still
have a great time with Riak even if your main OS is Windows. I've not found
it to be a barrier at all.
Just my $0.02 :) All the best with your experiments.
