"Installation: we recommend that you use Docker."

what I'm supposed to see: "hey, it's a simple one-liner! Such clean install, much wow."

what I actually see: "we couldn't figure out how to install this thing on anything but our own machine, but hey, here is a well-compressed image of our entire disk, use this instead so that we can stop trying"

@ssafar Or maybe package managers and distributing binaries in linux land is fundamentally broken and that's the only way you can guarantee the thing might have half a chance working...

but sure, that doesn't sound as catchy and l33t as "everyone else is incompetent"...

Maybe do half an attempt at understanding the problem space before hating on it next time.


@alatiera @ssafar
If Docker is the solution, then you're already screwed. And your 'solution' will have a shelf-life of less than a year.

As I like to say: πŸ‘‡
"Your software is already broken, it just hasn't fallen apart. Yet."

The wide-spread use of Docker only shows how bad current tech is.
Docker itself is fundamentally broken. Last time I checked, in 4 YEARS time they haven't been able to move away from IPtables ... because that would break their software.
See πŸ‘‡ above.
