Sorry but I have to disagree with this statement.
It is a pain to develop when one doesn't have enough
experience and have to study a lot of new things
which usually seem strange. But once you gain
the knowledge, things get easier.
And if something goes wrong on Linux you can always
take a look at the source code (Poorly documented
device driver? Look at ioctl() calls in its source...)
Try that with WinXYZ.
