You may dislike Redhat all you want (and hey, I've my beefs with them
too) but they do pay part of the bills (sometimes a significant part!)
for many things that are dear to our hearts. For example gcc, the GNU
C library and many friends (binutils, etc.) through their acquisition
of Cygnus Support (these days called Sourceware) in the 2000s; further
to the Linux kernel (through many kernel people on RH's paylist -- use
your own search engine this time ;-) and many, many more things.

Actually more than can be said about Canonical, for example (the latter
have at least given back to Debian by having Debian Developers on
payroll, so...)

As for the docker thingies... I get what they are supposed to do. But if
I can convince someone else to to the dirty work...
