The answer to that question is complex...
You can link visual studio compiled libraries (including static dlls) to
interix compiled app.
You can exec() win32 compiled apps
You can make calls to ntdll.dll (but not kernel32.dll)
You can make calls to any other dll, but those dlls should not call
kernel32.dll (not sure on this)...may have to block threads/sigs in this
case.
You will not be able to #include windows.h compiler will bork...
From the 'unix' shell, you can run windows apps with convention similar
to

posixrun /[...]/word.exe (or something like this)
