Re: Scope of UMDF

Also, with UMDF, your user-mode driver will get device semantics such as
integration with Win32 IO and with PnP and Power management.

With all the logic in one application, you cannot use the device easily
for a second application. In addition you can provide standard interfaces
with UMDF. Years ago, I made a lot of money in the mini-computer era
converting applications that knew how to talk devices into drivers that
could be used by a variety of applications.

Then I fail to see what the point of UMDF is. If it can't participate in
driver stack(NDIS, storage, etc) then I don't see how UMDF is any better
putting all the logic in the application and using WinUSB.
