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.
