Microsoft Codename Midori is a derivative of Singularity that is meant to supersede Windows, and it is more than just a research project. Singularity, is an experimental microkernel and operating system project started in 2003 for which Microsoft posted the source code back in March. Unfortunately Singularity was developed exclusively for research purposes and is not intended for practical use.

I agree, it's entirely possible. Think of the seamless virtualization of VMWare Fusion or Parallels. Users won't even notice that a window is running under a legacy OS. Only drivers and perhaps services will be required to be native on the new OS.
