I'm on it.

I find I have to port a few of the driver I wrote for Linux to NT, and I
intend to do that by writing an NT library that implements the Linux calls
I use, and calls the entry points my driver supports.

Seriously. Linux is our reference platform for all our products.

It will be intended for loadable modules, and it will be limited, but I'm
betting my schedule it will work. Oh, and yes I will release it under GPL
terms to the net. That is my company's policy, in general. (We are a
hardware company, not a software upgrade manufacturer.)

Wish me luck.
