Firstly why do you even need anything special to read/write to a serial
port? Not sure under windows, but under linux its as simple as
reading/writing to the device file.

In any case John pointed out the licensing issues, and so maybe you
should look at the COMEDI library at, which
supports a number of acquisition cards like NI does. Not sure about
GPIB, USB, etc..
