Cross-platform way to create win32 services and linux daemons all at once?

  1. Is there any elegant, slick way to avoid having to write the ugly framework for both of these things, or can I get service-like abilities all in one shot on one decent framework?
  2. How about writing for Linux and running on windows within Cygwin?

    "What is Cygwin?
    Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows. It consists of two parts:

    A DLL (cygwin1.dll) which acts as a Linux API emulation layer providing substantial Linux API functionality.
    A collection of tools which provide Linux look and feel."
    It's free.
