Which is easier to write drivers? Windows or Linux?
I want to learn something about driver development, my question is, which operating system has a simpler API for developing drivers? Windows or Linux?
Remember, I’m a newbie.
If you’re doing this to learn (and I’m guessing that’s your case), then by choosing Linux, you’ll have a more general ideal of how the operating system works, and you’ll interact directly with low-level implementations to the core.
If you’re just writing drivers for devices, I recommend using Visual Studio under Windows, which has a lot of features that can really help you with your development.
