I agree with it. I mean what's the point of making Linux Drivers work in reactos when almost all (excluding some strange case) hardware supported by Linux has a driver for some Windows. If some hardware is only supported in Linux (which I doubt) I think that it would be better to do the equivalent driver for Windows (only if it is a need). However the opposite is interesting simply because is smarter to develop just one driver instead of waste resources trying to do a Linux driver. Imagine the huge amount of Hardware vendors + users that will benefit.

If you are going to bring linux into this, try working on a way to just automatically convert Linux drivers to Windows, and bring in any helper features that may be useful. That's a start.
As said before, there's no reason for that, since the windows drivers al
work in reactos (at least eventually).
