_You_ wanted Linux and windoze coupled together more tightly, there you go!

Besides your question being far off-topic for this list, which is what Tarl 
probably wanted to imply as well, let me quickly share a thought. Maybe as 
a "prior art" reference, in case some wit considers that patentable rocket 

IIRC there already is an X server ( http://x.org ) for windoze, and also a KDE 
port being done. So, by launching a Xen, Linux in dom0, windoze in domU and 
passing it  the graphics hardware, the windows desktop, looking like windoze 
or KDE, could seamlessly show native windows, or Linux programs via X 
protocol over veth.
