It remains unclear if this was a nice try of trolling?
Did it ever occure to you, to ask this simple question:
"What is Linux?
Linux is a clone of the operating system Unix, written from
scratch by Linus Torvalds with assistance from a loosely-knit
team of hackers across the Net. It aims towards POSIX and Single
UNIX Specification compliance.
It has all the features you would expect in a modern
fully-fledged Unix, including true multitasking, virtual memory,
shared libraries, demand loading, shared copy-on-write
executables, proper memory management, and TCP/IP networking."
[ from www.kernel.org ]
Now, Linux belongs to a family of OS, called unix, the great
thing about it, if you know one, it isn't really hard to work
with another. You are free to develop your own OS, but your
proposed changes would simply be against "what is Linux".
If you want to run M$, simply do it, if you want Linux, simply
learn it. There are for sure enough knowledgeable people out
here, willing to get you going if you have a problem and ask us.
