"Installation: we recommend that you use Docker."

what I'm supposed to see: "hey, it's a simple one-liner! Such clean install, much wow."

what I actually see: "we couldn't figure out how to install this thing on anything but our own machine, but hey, here is a well-compressed image of our entire disk, use this instead so that we can stop trying"

@ssafar Couldn't agree more. Docker is making developers lazy and leading to software that's impossible to install outside of the very specific hand-tweaked environment provided by the docker image.

@dfs @ssafar sure, but i think that docker was so successful because environment reproducibility was already really bad; it wasn't bad just because of docker
