Hey! I've had this great idea - why not run everything in the kernel?
All that nasty context switching is such a waste of time. And
pre-emptive multitasking, I mean, who really needs that? Only losers who
can't write decent co-operative multitasking software. So that'll save
some more of that nasty switching. Oh yeah, and seperate address spaces
- they're a real pain - we could make the switches 10 times faster
without those. Cool! Now, what should it be called? I know! MS-DOS!
