Hi M.Manna,

Thanks for the update. 
If possible, can you please share which admin I/O level functionality will 
impact? Do you mean something related to log files renaming?
In documentation, there is no pointer with respect to I/O.
Kindly advice.

Kafka has some issues wuth IO level admin functionalities e.g. file 
deletion/renaming doesn't work out of the box like Linux. However, user base is 
growing and there's a momentum to support Windows OS seamlessly like Linux.
I have been running some stress tests on Windows and the performance is quite 
consistent. If you have any findings you would like to share, please publish 

Please read Kafka documentation where there are some disclaimers regarding OS

Hi Harish,

I believe many people/orgs use it on Windows. We rely on the community to 
test/fix/answer any Windows questions, same as with Linux or MacOS. However, 
based on what I've observed, perhaps there are more people answering 
Linux-related questions.
