I Don’t Know What I’m Talking About, But... externally this seems like a huge change that Kubernetes is making because it’ll be more convenient for *them*? I dunno,
I’m just glad I never took the advice to run this instance on Kubernetes. Docker is bad enough, folks!
@ashfurrow all the posts talking about the death of open source forget that it was never alive to begin with, it remains chiefly, undead
@ashfurrow as someone working in k8s now i understand why they're dong this. docker is often confused as the only container runtime and a lock-in ecosystem and it isn't, it's just a bunch of shit built on top of OCI and containerd. i don't think this is that big a deal nor is it really going to change anything, it's just something to note
@ashfurrow i am honestly pretty ok with seeing docker itself start having support pulled in favor of "anything that implements the CRI" - because docker doesn't really do that how it should and its weird centralized proprietary image hub is now causing serious problems for us what with the rate limits
@ashfurrow "we bootstrapped by supporting this tech that was established when we started, but now it's too hard and we got what we needed so we won't anymore"
That's pretty corporate for an Open Source project
@ashfurrow Only barely better than setting things up on the host directly and not without it's own quirks and drawbacks
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
