A lot has been discussed already about the timing, the language and the motives of CoreOS Rocket announcement. As an active user of both CoreOS and docker, what I am really interested to know is what will happen now. So I asked:
Surprisingly, both Brandon Philips (CoreOS CTO) and Solomon Hykes answered it. This is the full exchange:
So, as per above HN article Solomon's comments and his "migration grace period" here, the Docker boss seems definitely pissed off with the CoreOS move, which bodes ill for the future relation of these key players in the containerization scene.
So as things stand today, we are heading for some hot Christmas. Hopefully everyone will get back to their senses once the heat subsides and something good will emerge out of all this. Like more competition, so more incentives for both Docker and CoreOS's Rocket to get better and more open.
But by now, people like me, working with both projects, are left with many more questions than answers and some tough decisions ahead. If any one has a clue, please comeod forward!
