Migrate device control applications from Windows to Linux
If you develop device control applications on different platforms, you know that Windows and Linux have different ways of doing device control, and migrating applications from one to the other can be a pain. In this article, we analyze how device control works in both operating systems, examining everything from architecture to system calls and focusing on the differences. We also give you a migration sample (in C/C++) to demonstrate the migration in detail.
