He's not talking about a "two-sided market", he's talking about an industry that is trying to double bill. The end user pays for the delivery infrastructure, and if they need to build more capacity, it should come out of the huge profits these companies are realizing. *That's* how Economics 101 works. Saying "I'd really hate something bad to happen to your bits on the way to your customer...maybe you should pay me a little something to make sure that doesn't happen" and then claiming "I need the money because bandwidth" is simply extortion. Utter bullshit, every word of it.

If you go to the Drupal page, you get a lot about how great Drupal is, and one line about "and we use one of these databases". So I think my analogy is spot on. Further, if you do more than read the linked Docker announcement, the fact they are layered on LXC is pretty much all over the docs. Or do you suggest we have to start referring to it as "LXC/Docker" to make sure noone could possibly not know there's a connection.

Docker is indeed hot right now, for some pretty good reasons.
  • - (Relatively) easy to use management wrapper around LCX, in particular quick deployment and a templating mechanism to describe container contents and deal with dependencies
  • - Uses a union filesystem to thiny provision containers, with development work to use other filesystem mechanisms to achieve the same goal
  • - There's a ecosystem to share containers similar to ecosystems around sharing pre-built virtual machines
  • - Backed by a commercial company

Sure...done before. Evolution, not revolution. Very useful if you fit it's use case.

If you had to guess what a piece of software called "Apache" did, what would you think? If you had to guess what a piece of software called "Hadoop" did, what would you think? If you had to guess what a piece of software called "C" did, what would you think? If you had to guess what a piece of software called "Postgres" did, what would you think? If you had to guess....blah, blah, blah...

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.

Working...
