ATI has a fairly large Linux team devoted to their Xilleon set-top box product. I don't know any numbers, but it is probably more than a few programmers. Mind you this has nothing to do with radeon driver development, and I doubt any of those people have ever touched the radeon code base.

About the Linux developers not have access to the windows source, I really doubt that. Especially if you take this post into consideration: http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-help/2004-05/msg00237.html.

Whether they use the windows code or not is a different story...
and from the quoted URL...

I am looking at having a gcc-3.3.3 that runs under windows and generates linux binaries.

Does anyone one know of any references for building a gcc.exe that generates binaries for Linux under Windows?

# Cygwin is not a way to run native linux apps on Windows. You have to rebuild your application from source if you want to get it running on Windows.
# Cygwin is not a way to magically make native Windows apps aware of UNIX functionality, like signals, ptys, etc. Again, you need to build your apps from source if you want to take advantage of Cygwin functionality.
ahh yes, suckage must......suck...bahahahahaha
