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 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 .

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)

I clarified it with references to the installation guides. Docker's tools run on all platforms, but on non-Linux platforms, the containers are run on a Linux virtual machine on Windows/Mac. S-1-5-7 (talk) 19:09, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Removal of CoreOS as a "see also" link[edit]

Hello, Spanop! Regarding your edit, IMHO the explanation you've provided doesn't sound reasonable. CoreOS is a software product produced by a company called CoreOS, Inc., so there should be no issues from including a link to the CoreOS article in "See also" section. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 05:47, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Is this page about the software or the company?[edit]

The article begins "Docker is an open-source project" which suggests it is about the software itself.

But the "Collaboration" section uses Docker to mean the company Docker, Inc.

This page should be more clear about the distinction between the two, or maybe even should be split into two separate pages. WDYT?

I've created a draft about company: Draft:Docker_(company). Please review and edit accordingly. --Vanuan (talk) 22:54, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
The company has its own page now, Docker,_Inc. Some of the information from this page should probably be moved to that page.
