There's even one committer from Microsoft aboard, Wes Witt. ;-)

When they tried to get a foot into the Fruit-Pi community by
porting Windows and tools to it, they were also interested in
getting AVRDUDE to compile under their toolchain.

It got quite silent around that topic though lately. I guess they
weren't all that successful with the entire project, not regarding
AVRDUDE but the overall Fruit-Pi community. To be fair, neither did
projects like FreeBSD gain much terrain in that area, even though
technically, they can handle the Pi platform as well.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
