I overheard people talking about Rocket excited to hear about some competition it made me google and find the blog post. I admit Docker has kind of let me down so I could be looking at this in anger; but after looking over the Rocket SPEC that thinks makes sense.

  • We never included a full root filesystem with chroots. > a/k/a treating a Chroot like a Virtual Machine.
  • Handling images never looked so beautiful
    • I did not like the notion of having to run a registry server to host my own images.

      I always wondered why no one talked about putting Varnish in front of the Registry.

The future looks great as competition is always good!
