My view so far So.. my view on Linux containers, managed with i.e. podman or docker so far were this: complicated, and for servers. I run Linux for myself on desktops, and on servers, where I host things like DNS/bind, webserver, Wikis, Tiny tiny RSS for collecting RSS feeds, and so on. I run these services on a virtual system in Germany. So far, almost all of these services were running natively: that makes it easy for me to update them as I trust the Linux distro maintainers of the distro to fix security issues when they get known.
