That makes no sense in the context you are discussing.  There is no
pure binary which will run on both a GNU/Linux system and a Windows
system.  Even on a bare embedded board, which is very different from a
GNU/Linux or Windows system, different devices must be handled in
different ways.

I think you need to understand why this makes no sense before you can
proceed to understanding why the rest of your posting makes no sense.
