Just correnting typos.  Have to find my wiki password.

Something most people are not aware is that all Unix/Linux/BSD kernels cannot load dynamic binary at all.

Instead depend on little user space programs to do it. Like ld-linux.so.2 yes they hides as a library yet they are static executables.

Where windows dynamic loader is part of kernel.

Hello major issue. Wine can work since it replaces the Unix/Linux/BSD dynamic loader.

Under windows it requires adding a windows subsystem that would be a completely different design. Then you would have two subsystems fighting to load the binary. Not fun.
