docker is the kind of software that i dont really have Strong Criticisms of but still refuse to use because im doing fine without it and also it has Enterprise Vibes

the performance impact is Allegedly Not Too Bad and i can see why one would want to isolate things, and yet i just do Not enjoy the Enterprise Techbro Startup Vibes so i simpley live without containerizing everything i host

i also have the same exact opinion about tailscale, kubernetes, kibana, etc

if it somehow manages to have worse Enterprise Vibes than literally java then i have enough self respect to Stay Away from it

of course this is a separate category of software i dont like that is different from "software i dont like due to how it works" or "software i dont like due to its maintainers or community"

i feel like theres just a certain gender of software that is like "we ❤️ open source | built with ❤️ go | your local enterprise-core uwu devops glassmorphism microsoft-core æ smol startup | free software | request demo | please pay for our cloud subscription | $9.99/mo | scalable | built with ❤️ love | plug-and-play kubernetes integration"

yes im subtooting træfik. youre going in the "i do not wish to touch the wacky enterprise-core stuff" pile

sorry but everything about this kind of software is just like "how do we appeal as hard as possible to the 'i love capitalism i think we should make more capitalism' type of guy" and its the worst first impression when my intent behind using software is "solving problems i have" and not "adding another pointless layer to my ever-growing shiny tech stack to make the investors horny"


once again sorry but combining "cloud-native" and "That Just Works" in the second sentence on your website, and then following it with a "request demo" email button that is then followed by a list of corporations that use your product just triggers my gag reflex in the worst way possible



@AgathaSorceress it would strike me that Just Works™ for a “cloud native” thing would mean “goes up in smoke”?
