Code reuse is fun. I suggest you do it the other way around though -
a driver in plain C for both linux and windows.

C++ for linux may be possible, if you do the job of making C++
work with kernel code yourself. Most others don't want it, can't be
convinced, and certainly won't help you with it. If this is too
much - port your driver to C.
