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. -- This message posted from opensolaris.org _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
