Windows NT architecture is dramatically different that UNIX. You cannot simply convert dramatically different architectures. NT registries, etc. all of these 'NT things' do not simply translate to UNIX.

When architectures are very different, a much higher level of transformation is required; normally a top down architectural redesign.
