If Joyent pulls this off, there'll be some scrambling going on
Lorna, SmartOS would be a competitor to Linux, and as such, it hasn't done all that well. And it willl need some engineering to deal with Docker Linux containers. If Joyent pulls off secure Linux containers on multi-tenant servers, you're going to see some scrambling going on by those who insist containers must be run in virtual machines. Developers will vote with their feet on that one.

Docker v SmartOS
Charlie, Did Joyent attempt to promote SmartOS in the market as a competitor to Docker? If not, why? Sounds like the security is a selling point.
