Both Windows and Linux are coded mostly in C++

I hate to break it to you but Linux is NOT coded in C++. The Linux kernel is coded in plain old C.

Scrap the idea of a kernel, and use multiple diferent kernel-like "programs" that controll the computer, but are controlled by a master super-kernel that has no real executing abilities of it's own (a security minded idea more than inovation in architecture)

That sounds a lot like a microkernel to me.
