There are speculations that future Microsoft Windows OS, will only be a kernel.
And each program will be installed in an individual VM created for that
program. Hence, the kernel would be minimalistic and not bloated.
Can not something similar be done to Solaris? For instance, small Kernel, and
everything installed in separate zones? This requires that Solaris Zones can be
very minimilastic, they read the system files from the Kernel install, and
write in it's own filesystem.
