    If I use MySQL on windows is there a significant performance hit. I want my application to support multiple databasses but retain speed. Is this possible to do

    yes it's possible -- speed is not related to operating system, but to how well mysql is optimized

    Mysql is written in C. It gets compiled for the microprocessor family it is running on. The only operating specific difference between the various source/binaries is in the code that allows it to run as an interrupt driven service and integrate with the TCP/IP stack.
