We have experience of running Windows Servers from the times of Proxmox 
1.x, currently using Proxmox 2.x and 3.x in different environments. We 
have not used VMWare vSphere in production (but we did migrate a VMWare 
vSphere infraestructure to Proxmox 3.x). We are running Windows 2003, 
Windows 2008 32bit, Windows 2008R2 32bit, Windows 2012 64 bit.

We're quite happy with the results, it's very important to use virtio 
drivers for performance. You may have some issues shutting down windows 
boxes from Proxmox GUI, there are some instructions for this to work on 
PVE wiki.
