We’ve had more than 10 years of Docker and containers being an important part of coders life, but seasoned developers are still confusing containers and virtual machines.

Everyone says “yes, I know the differences”, but a few days later say something that clearly shows they have missed half of it.

Ah! Containers, what an unfortunate name! No wonder people are fooled. I guess somewhat-glorified-and-isolated-processes wasn’t catchy enough.

BTW: lxd system containers are far closer to how people think about docker application containers.

#linux #docker #lxd
