Anonymity systems like Tor are designed to be resistant to bad nodes,
even when the operator of the node is a bad guy. Working on this
premise, how can the security weakness of Windows be sufficient
justification for not running a Tor node on it? Certainly some degree
of caution and careful monitoring would be advisable but this holds true
when opening any public service.
Running a Tor server on Vista seems like a very good idea, if only to
provide the developers with feedback on how well it works.
