Mixed, but I speak only for myself.
On one hand, RedHat is known for its Not-Invented-Here syndrome.
Endless re-implementation of known tools can hardly do anyone any good.
Also, vendor lock-in and all that.
On the other hand, "Docker Community"/"Docker Enterprise" - ? That's
the road that no sensible program should take.
