What a Docker shocker: Founder, CTO Solomon Hykes takes a hike


Re: Docker's future is bright

I do strongly agree with one of your underlying points: it's a sad state of affairs where application version dependency is so complex that we need a system like Docker.

The reality is that such a tool is needed. Despite its high cost, it enables progress.

Unfortunately it hides another reality -- that many applications are built on layers of compressed sewage. Unless you freeze it, the constant stirring means that it is always shifting, propping up some areas while new voids appear.

Bottom line: there is money to be made freezing shit.
