The free OSR Learning Library has more than 50 articles on a wide variety of topics about writing and debugging device drivers and Minifilters. From introductory level to advanced. All the articles have been recently reviewed and updated, and are written using the clear and definitive style you've come to expect from OSR over the years.

I am a student who just started in Windows Driver Development. The project I am trying to do is to create a Virtual Monitor and capturing its framebuffer.
The examples that Microsoft have about Display Drivers is a KMDOD and i don't know if i will be capable of archiving my goal using this type of driver.
Another doubt i have is that if KMDOD can use a real GPU to render the windows on the display. In WDDM 1.2 features documentation it says that "Windows handles the 2-D or 3-D rendering by using software-simulated GPU." but on MS forums "Even WDDM Display-Only-Drivers (which do not have a WDDM User Mode Driver) need actual graphics adapter hardware." so i do not know if the rendering would be done by HW GPU or SF GPU.
