Re: Highly Popular, Not Profitable

The money being made in the containerization and VM world is in the interface controls and as far as I know Docker doesn't do anything but Docker while other companies do all of them.

The hard sell for containers is that as long as the underlying container software is bug free, then it's really the OS that is taking the wheel, so selling that type of software is similar to selling a boot loader. Well, I guess it's a very, VERY hard sell because VM's are more complicated but now VM software alone is a hard sell and ironically largely due to container software.
