Docker at Age 2 Reaches Out Far Beyond Its Roots

The open-source Docker container application virtualization project turned two-years old on March 20, marking a robust period of market hype, interest and adoption. Docker was originally just the Docker-engine project started by Solomon Hykes at platform-as-a-service vendor dotCloud. The original dotCloud business has been sold, and Docker Inc. is its own business and has raised $66 million in multiple funding rounds. The project has grown to include Hykes as chief architect, Steve Francia as the chief operator and Michael Crosby as chief maintainer. In the last two years, many vendors—including Red Hat, IBM, Microsoft, VMware and Amazon—have embraced Docker technology. Other companies are creating technologies and products that extend, complement and support it. Docker needs a host OS on which to run, which has led to Red Hat's creating Project Atomic. CoreOS and RancherOS have also emerged as purpose-built optimized operating systems for container deployment. eWEEK examines the wide world of Docker container virtualization. Read more

At some point in time I have used each of these distros as my primary OS except for Mageia and Open Mandriva, which I tried but never used due to uncertainty around their future. Read more

While it's still a tad expensive, the discount makes it a bit easier to get some Android Auto into your car. In case you've somehow managed to avoid any mention of Android Auto up until now, it allows you to connect any Android device running on Android 5.0 Lollipop with the relatively new Android Auto app in order to use it to control everything from navigation to music and phone calls.
