.NET (dotGNU too) "Previously, we have presented one of the two opensource licensed projects related to creating a C# kernel. Now it's the time to complete the set by rightfully presenting SharpOS, an effort to build a GPL version 3 + runtime exception licensed system, around a C# kernel of their own design. It is my pleasure and priviledge to host a set of questions and answers from four active developers of SharpOS, that is William Lahti, Bruce Markham, Mircea - Cristian Racasan and Sander van Rossen in order to get some insight into what they are doing with SharpOS, their goals, their different design and inspiration."

That does happen to some degree with other platforms (the ndiswapper (or however it's spelt) for running Windows wifi drivers in linux and I believe Hakiu has a wrapper to run linux drivers).

however I think, in the case of C# OSs, it would be counter productive having a linux wrapper going by the comments raised here about the advantages gained of managed code.
