Hi Marc, The only thing missing would be testing and support. We do most of our testing on linux boxes and for the same reason its easy for us to support the platforms that we use. We do not have access to windows boxes to test and (therefore) support windows as a suggested production platform. Also, the other reason is that currently we have a very few set of people who contribute there time for development and support of Zookeeper and are more conversant with linux than windows. It would be a stretch to expect them to support windows as a production platform.
Hope this helps.
