No system is actually truly capable of this, with the exception of the 
newest kid on the block Plan9. Winblows, in its current form, is the 
bastard love child of DOS and some black sheep cousin of Unix 
(twice-removed), so its not happening there either; just some sleight of 
hand tricks to partially achieve the result with a decrease of security 
to boot.
