The entire Stack Exchange network runs on it. What more evidence do you need?

Performance rarely is a product of the web server unless you're in extremely high-volume scenarios. Based on the question, I would doubt you're there. And yes, IIS can perform well. This website is run on IIS and MS SQL Server, for example.

Those features are available on Windows. What I'm asking isn't "why nginx?" it's "why nginx on Windows?" This isn't a common setup. People don't typically run applications designed for *nix and ported to Windows in production networks.

Why are you using nginx on Windows? Why not nginx on Linux or IIS on Windows?

comment Selecting a boot drive for Hyper-V 2012 server - is a boot drive performance important?
I don't believe installing full Windows Server to SD is supported, but Hyper-V Server can be installed on certain removable media. I may have misspoke when I said SD, but a USB flash drive is definitely supported.

comment Bitlocker Auto-Unlock
This is why the Bitlocker deployment guide from Microsoft recommends disabling S3 sleep and causing the lid close action to default to hibernate. Memory is not active in hibernate mode.

Performance of the host OS doesn't matter a whole lot. You can install it on an SD card, for example.

comment Is running our workstation network through VoIP handset best practice?
How would you overwhelm the switch? A shared 1Gb media can only transmit at 1Gb no matter how many devices are on the other side.

comment DNS Registration Using Non Windows DHCP
Are the devices that are connecting over the VPN joined to your AD domain? If so, are you allowing secure dynamic updates to your internal DNS zone?

comment I think we're overdoing "get a new job" recommendations in comments
I think you two are going off on a tangent here. This wasn't about the quality of the question - it's clearly poor. It's about the recommendation to get a new job that's been popping up more and more in the comments.

comment What did I miss when asking this question? Is it actually inappropriate to ask "Why?"
Sorry, maybe I'm not understanding you, but I wasn't asking anyone to look for an ulterior motive or to read deeper than face value. I was asking that if the claim of a ban was true, what reason was the official one given by the banning agency? These bans don't happen in a vacuum, there is documentation for the official cause (safety, emissions, etc). That is what I was asking for. I'm finding that a lot of people around here read the word "why" and think the worst :)

comment I think we're overdoing "get a new job" recommendations in comments
You can't make an informed comment that tells someone to get a job. You don't know their financial situation, the job market in their region, their current pay vs. competitor pay, how many children they provide for, or any number of other non-technical things that factor in to where you are employed. What you can make an informed comment on is the technology they're using, why they should or shouldn't use it, and why you think that. The former is a waste of time and potentially insulting. The latter is helpful. Or just cast a downvote and move on.
