My personal preference that is cut from any application goes into one buffer and paste from any application comes from that buffer.

That seems to be the Windows default.

Linux has multiple buffers.  I use Parcellite to keep them in sync.

"The Problem" was loss of emacs keyboard interaction with the X Window
primary selection cut buffer between v23 and v24.  Cutting with the
mouse in some other X window application puts the text into the X
Windows cut buffer also known as the primary selection.  In v23
yanking text would copy text from that buffer.  In v24 C-y no longer
yanked text in from it.  In v24 C-y yank ignored the X Window primary
selection cut buffer.  This breaks keyboard use.  However paste using
the mouse still worked.
