Yes. We will. And in 10 years from now the inevitable backlash against
containers because they aren't new and nifty and had all these warts
that come from real life will be in full swing. [This doesn't mean
that containers will go away any more than they were completely new in
the first place but ideas that Multics (and other OS's had) in the
1960/70's.] This is how software goes.
Well we will be retired at that point, and playing shuffle board.
