Nagios doesn't have a fraction of the features that most people use in Windows performance monitor. Here are some examples:
1. The ability for the user of a system to easily graph the current state of the system or store hysterical data
2. The ability of a user graphing performance to choose which values they want to see from a fairly fine-grained list and combine any number of these values
3. The ability to change what you are graphing through a simple interface and instantly see the results
4. The ability to generate a graph within minutes of deciding to
For long term stuff, a combination of rrdtool and nagios can be used to record this kind of information, but in this case a regular user would not be able to create these reports. There are also issues surrounding the reporting periods and changing this is non-trivial - certainly beyond the capabilities of most regular users, and it requires more time than just clicking a new metric to monitor and choosing a colour for it.
Don't get me wrong - nagios is a fantastic tool for a variety of situations - it's just nowhere near a replacement for the windows performance monitor.
