Unix, Linux, and Mac OS X all work equally well. Haven't tried git-daemon on
Windows, however I have noticed that Git in general is much slower on Windows
and the default memory limit is low, which can cause problems with large
repositories. I'd guess that git-daemon might have similar problems.
In the past, I have had problems with programs with programs in general
accessing shared resources on file shares. I've had permission problems,
update problems, and corruption problems when the network fails. I have had
much better success with SSH.
