I have to admit Docker can be pretty useful.
The levels of abstractions of running containers in VMs in an OS are insane. I don't like that.
But containers as packaging & distribution mechanism are pretty handy.


If I have to run software build with many different technologies containers seem the way to go.

At work we run Docker in prod + locally for dev.
We even have a few tools packaged as containers to run in CI pipelines and so on.
Setting up a customer instance is a single `docker run` command that fetches the correct config files to run the other containers after.
