I'm glad you educated me about Kernel level changes (Ring Zero) and how they are made with every major and minor version. The change from XP to Vista must have had something to do with a filesystem rewrite, but I could be wrong.

As for the consumer/professional track, while this may make our development and "real work" lives easier, and it would, I don't see MS going down this road again. They went there with the Windows 9.x vs NT branch. They also had two codebases at the time, unified in Win2K.
Free your mind and the rest will follow,
Don't be colorblind, don't be so shallow!
