Linux There are several ways to run Windows programs on Linux (virtualisation, WINE) and vice versa really isn't a problem either with Cygwin, or better yet, native ports thanks to the Windows variants of Gtk+ and Qt. Still, what if Windows support was built straight into the Linux kernel? Is something like that even possible? Sure it is, and the Chinese figured it'd be an interesting challenge, and called it the Linux Unified Kernel.

I think it would be much more easier, well if somebody know how to do it, to add a Linux-personality to the NT kernel than adding the whole NT kernel to Linux. Its a bit like the Linux personality for the Mach kernel
