Eric S. Raymond wrote in to tell us that he has updated The Magic Cauldron (his essay on economics and Open Source) to contain an appendix on common arguments for keeping device drivers closed (Pay attention Creative Labs!) He also says "The argument turns on the fact that drivers are small pieces of code, easy to disassemble if need be. This argument would be considerably strengthened if I could point readers at a working set of tools for disassembling Windows drivers into recompileable source (or even just assembly) code. I would appreciate pointers to any such tools."
