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.

Not to rain down on your parade to much, but printer drivers do not live in the Linux-kernel. And to be complete, video-drivers don't live in the Linux-kernel either, we'll until recently anyway. They are moving a small part into the kernel now.
