Absolute zero

What would happen to matter if we were to reach absolute zero? Would it shatter?

Matter supposedly can never reach absolute zero because there is always some energy retained in vibrational energy (according to quantum theory). If hypothetically we could drain out all the remaining vibrational energy, everything would be perfectly still, even to the level of every atom staying exactly in place. I don't believe anything dramatic would happen (except for a required adjustment to quantum theory). It would probably look exactly like matter frozen solid at almost absolute zero.
