Contested deletion[edit]

This page is not unambiguously promotional because: read the references. It's a project that's a part of the Linux foundation. This has already been contested once and eventually was the speedy deletion request was rejected.

Sock Puppet[edit]

Is this the work of a sockpuppet ? The candor of the text feels like its advertising the product in order to draw attention to it. See the related topics section they are not pertinent, except to draw upon other tech buzzwords . (talk) 15:04, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, you're right there, the article does sound a bit like an advertisement. — Dsimic (talk) 15:18, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
The abuse of English is atrocious. I'm not sure some of the wording actually means anything. I'll try to improve it at some point. -- Dream of Goats (talk) 21:54, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Buzzword complete but not informative[edit]

The article claims that Docker is about Linux applications but then ends by saying that Microsoft is integrating it into both their server and client products. This seems to indicate that Docker isn't about Linux applications. Could you run a Microsoft application under your Linux server? Or vice verse? If not, why does anyone care that an app is built with Docker? If it's just a library that apps call, is it really notable? The article is buzzword complete with cloud blah and software-as-a-portalfull of sound and fury but lacking real information. Gnuish (talk) 06:45, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
