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.

Mixology... applied

Is ia a good idea to mix a ketchup with the icecream, to explore a wider area of tastes? Or do you want to combine two different pairs of pants at the same time, to feel more flexible? Such mixes are not good. It wouldn't be GNU/Linux and it wouldn't be Windows. Personaly, I prefer both but separately. It's better to have one solution for one purpose than to have universal tools.

But the idea is interesting indeed and that's all for me.

What about keyloggers, adware, spyware, worms, viruses and other malware crap? Are they supported "out-of-the-box" by such kernel?
