Would Linux drivers be helpful for developing MP drivers? (1 Viewer)

I have a Fusion 5 Gold card that I am trying to get working as a QAM tuner without having to use the Dvico software that came with it. While waiting for Media Portal to support this, I have moved to MythTV under Linux as a possible alternative.

I don't have it working on my system yet, but there are those that do. So, knowing that there are functional ATSC/QAM Linux drivers for the Fusion 5 cards in the US, would these drivers be helpful as a starting point for developing Windows drivers for Media Portal?

I am not a programmer, so I don't know if there is enough commonality between Windows and Linux at the driver code level for this idea to make sense.
