We will do it for Elinos 3.0. There aren't any release dates fixed,

Actually, my personal opinion on that matter is that I'm not very fond
of using Windows for a Linux kernel development platform. Doing --
ideally pure ANSI-C/C++ -- application development is a different
story. Thus, I feel it is much more sane to split it right there, if
you must:  develop application code whereever you like, but compile
your kernel and integrate your project on Linux.

Just my $.02,
