does Linux really suck because of containers?

It’s all fun and games until Microsoft does a “catch and kill” aka “Embrace, Extend, Extinguish”. But really…. containers? So long as there is a scratch base image docker is nothing more than a tools that consolidates jail or chroot ideas. Clearly the problem with containers that include OS functionality is that you get all that other cruft with it. Make a better chroot/jail, make docker go away.
