Gullible Jones know how to show your true knowledge level.
Apparmor has failed integration with main line kernel due to technical flaws in it design. So depending on it to save your tail is pure foolishness.
X11 And Windows windows managers are incompatible with each other.
X11 programs provide different icon sizes to windows completely. X11 windows manager is expected to do a lot of things windows one is not.
Also you are forgetting wine is designed to integrate in many places to Linux.
There are other options other than XOrg. Like wayland. Go straight to the video stack avoid X11 completely. There is nothing to be gained by static linking in the X11 libs other. More often than not worse memory usage by doing so by the way.
Besides your idea is really poor compared to the likes of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_Unified_Kernel
Since you also state not newbie friendly you might as well forget getting windows users. If its not newbie friendly they will not put up with it.
Now if you want Linux users they will want native applications as well. So you idea is screwed.
I am sorry to say Gullible from a secuirty point of view lots of windows applications are junk.
Also bad of bad windows malware does infect wine. So keeping windows applications around and using wine really does weaken your secuirty.
Goal should be to provide feed up to applications that could possiable make the application you want native so getting you away from the windows problem. Ie wine should be nothing more than a way to escape windows in my eyes.
If the system is going to run pure windows apps in linux to save ass you will need fanotify to add real-time anti-virus scanning all the time and take the speed hit.
Many have dreamed up this stupid idea. Once you make a OS too much like windows you have all the same problems.
How most viruses get into windows is windows users get use to installing from everywhere. Secuirty systems cannot protect you from dumb users. On the other hand Linux's work by the repository model were all applications there are audited. This is one of the major difference in virus spreed between the two OS's. Your idea will remove the difference.
