Containers all the way down

Isn't the point of an operating sytem to provide process isolation whilst offering standardised services ?

Of course, those services develop in different ways, and eventually we have the problem that our processes depend on the rapidly diverging 'standard' services.

I guess next month's thing will be a container virtualisation model, so we can substitute the app container or containing OS of our choice.
