Thank you. This:

"Serverless, meanwhile, is also no big threat to containers. It is a stupid name for the technology in question, which is really something between a batch script and a TSR that you run on a cloud."

is the best description of 'serverless' I've come across thus far and I full intend to use it the next time I'm interviewed by buzzword-spewing imbeciles from middle damagement.

Containers? chroot on steriods with a network layer slapped on top.

What's old is new again - both of these things existed, albeit in a slightly different form, when I was at university in the 90s.

Bill Hicks was right - if you're in marketing, just do the world a favour and kill yourself.
