Re: Just another..
Caveman invented wheel.... OMG Ford, VW, Audi saw it as a threat and were forced to chase the innovation AGAIN.
With that brain-dead pattern of thinking, we'd never end up with any kind of standardization. In which case, the internet would not exist, computers would still be based upon 8 bit processors, and we'd probably be living in the world of "Fallout" style technology - with you reading this on a green CRT display.
Linux is no different, do you think things like KVM and Docker were original? Get real.. Containers have been around for decades, just because they are suddenly "cool" doesn't make them innovative.
I see some really good uses for Containers, they won't replace Virtualisation - but we might just be looking at the next generation of software installation and deployment systems (Note I've only recently started playing with Docker, but installation of Docker containers is painless!)
