I can't say for sure but I run it on Windows Server. It's been pretty stable. I'm not sure how this poll will work. I mean, how many people have tried every platform it can run on? That would be a huge task. So far, I will keep it where it is because it works and I understand Windows Server better than the other options.

I found out that you can run it on Windows 10 without a problem from a support tech at Kerio.

I'm switching my installation from Mac to Centos at the suggestion of a tech also.

won't everyone just vote their platform? It is very stable on Mac platform as far as I know. The only exception is when you try to stop the server and it is very active.

I have 20+ customers running Kerio Connect on both macOS and Linux. From my experience, Linux is the most stable of these two.
Biggest advantage of running on Linux is that you can have a minimal OS install, with only the components running that are needed for Kerio Connect. With MacOS (and Windows) you always have a complete OS with GUI as 'overhead', using part of your resources like RAM and CPU.
Apart from that, macOS (more specifically, the filesystem )slows down when you have directories with 1000+ files (which can happen if users have large mailboxes).

a bit late top the party, but I run numerous KC on Windows 7, 10, Windows Server 2008, 2019 and macOS 10.11, 10.14 and 10.15. They're all reliable.

If you want to take into account the underlying hardware for reliability and performance, then a Linux or Windows server is all you have - SSD RAID and affordable multi core machines. You probably won't use a $25k Mac Pro to host Kerio.

Where is the poll? I don't see it. Runs stable on MacOS...no stability issues for last 10+ years. Regarding the comment on Mac hardware, newest Mac Minis + Kerio Connect + external storage are more than powerful enough to handle hundreds of users.
