I'll try to be clearer: is this SimpleProgramDebugger a Windows  
alternative to Valgrind or other Linux tools that people use to do  
profiling, backtraces etc. etc. ?

I have no experience at all with Linux and I don't have enough spare time  
to learn it, so I wonder if this Windows tool may be used by Windows users  
like me to obtain the same results as Linux users do with Valgrind.

if yes,  will the developers be able to interpret SimpleProgramDebugger's  
output like they already do with Valgrind?
