SmartOS is an open-source UNIX-like operating system based on illumos, a community fork of OpenSolaris. It features four technologies - ZFS (a combined file system and logical volume manager), DTrace (a dynamic tracing framework for troubleshooting kernel and application problems), Zones (a lightweight virtualisation solution) and KVM (a full virtualisation solution for running a variety of guest operating systems, including Linux, Windows, BSD and Plan9). SmartOS is designed to be particularly suitable for building clouds and generating appliances.

SmartOS is designed to handle the biggest of datacentres but it will equally work well for desktop servers. It is on desktops and laptops where I see the brightest future for SmartOS. It is lacking a good intuitive GUI for primary management, but it has the capability to surpass all existing desktop OSes by being a desktop hypervisor of the future. It is in this role where any existing OS can be installed and run under the desktop hypervisor (SmartOS) and allow files and functions from one OS to interact with another OS all with complete security and separation.

I have never seen this approach used in such a manner as I am describing, but I can see a tremendous potential for this approach to mould itself into an operating system to dominate all desktop systems into the future. It has the potential to remove many interoperability problems and allow existing operating systems to evolve into a holistic future OS.

Of course, this is not what the creators intended, but it is a vision that I can see possible. And that is something that I thought would never be possible. I hope this insight will inspire people to make it happen.
