After three years of using docker, I can safely say "it just works" was a lie.

    i absolutely hated (and still hate) docker. it took me an entire week to get our app running locally. the obscure errors were countless. granted, we dont have admin rights (which deserves a rant of its own) so any sort of "privileged" configuration required contacting our IT support team 🤦‍♂️

    Docker is the iOS of build scripting. Take shell scripts that work fucking fine by themselves and wrap them in candy crap.

    It took you that long?!

    I remember reading some tech journal saying that containers are the new JVM, because, you know, it's such a well defined standard.

    Docker surely takes some CPU for running. But a week ? Its a bit long bro.

    Docker + Linux, no issues and if you don't want to care at all about privileges just run it on macOS

    I feel this. I got in a huge argument with a co-worker because I figured out that the macOS version does some hand wavey magic to make interactions with the host file system easier, which was why it "worked on my machine" but not when deployed. He _would not_ accept that docker worked any differently between host operating systems, even going so far as to claim he'd accomplished exactly what we were struggling with before. I told him to prove it and miraculously I never heard anything about it again.
