You seem to be averse to the Linux kernel, but, if you really want to
run a complete Debian environment you can do that with CoLinux; also
the AndLinux project takes that and pairs it with a complete Ubuntu
The disadvantage to doing such virtualization is that you have to
partition your system RAM between the Windows and Linux kernels.
