Have you considered running the windows machine, as asked, but a linux
box as well? Then, the tasks which happen to fail under MS can still
succeed on linux. Before long, nobody minds where the successes

For the last 9 years I've been the only linux user here. What works for
me is building the toolchain for each new target (MS users can then
replicate under cygwin), writing the linker scripts, and answering any
tool questions. When they ask for snmp, you build net-snmp on your
linux box without a hassle. When they ask for an eCos port, you do it on
linux, and the team can follow on MS, if they insist. (Mind you, I've
never used MS, so no-one suggests it any more. :-)

YMMV, depending on cheek.
