Nsock on Windows is still stuck using select(), which has performance limitations. Overlapped I/O is one option for handling many thousands of concurrent connections efficiently.

I think the difficulty will be to make it fit within nsock reactor model...

Poll() is available on windows and can handle many FDs, though not as efficiently as the advanced APIs mentioned here.
